Banana Rajgira Pancakes

If you haven't tried rajgira I suggest you try it now! Also known as Amaranth, it is a grain that has been growing in India for centuries. It can be made in to rotis, cakes, cookies and pancakes. It has an intense nutty flavour that's hard to miss and blends in easily.

This is my brother's favourite breakfast pancake.

You need:
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rajgira flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 banana
1/2 cup sugar
water / soy milk
1 teaspoon ground flaxseed

Put the flours, cinnamon and sugar in the bowl. Mash the banana in to a pulp and add it in. Mix the ground flaxseed with 2 tablespoons of water and whisk it till it becomes gooey almost like an egg.

Mix everything together with some water or soy milk till it gets to almost a dosa batter consistency.

Heat a flat pan / tawa and spoon some batter on to it. Cover it if possible and flip it after a few minutes.

Serve with fresh fruit and some jaggery / maple syrup


  1. hey thanks rithika for the recipe. I have been searching for rajgira recipes for long. Can I increase the amount of rajgira and decrease wheat flour in here or it has to be 1 cup?

    Pls share more rajgira recipes with me if you have them.

    1. Hey Sejal!

      When I tried out this recipe I used that much wheat flour, I havent tried it with a lesser amount of wheat.

      You can even try eliminating the wheat and using rice flour instead if you want to avoid wheat.

      Must go buy some rajgira flour now to expermient. :)

  2. Whisk the flax seed means to grind it?
