I love waffles, as much as sweet ones, these vegan and low-carb Kothimbir Vadi Waffles are my favourite too. 

Whenever, there is a leftover Idli batter in the fridge, I make this fluffy and delicious Waffle Idli Delights, and serve with spiced potatoes and green chutney. 


WHY YOU WILL LOVE THIS RECIPE?

Well, there are many reasons why you will love and want to keep this recipe in your repetiore.

Easy to make - for this recipe all the steps are so simple. Simply chop the vegetables and mix all the ingredients and let the waffle maker do its job.

Seasonal vegetables - you van use whatever vegetables available. Use carrots or butter nut squash instead of pumpkin, or add finely chopped cauliflower, broccoli, spring onion or greens such as spinch or methi (fenugreek leaves). 

Healthy and comforting - Using grated and finely chopped vegetables is a great way to incorporate vegetables into meal. Any 'picky eaters' at home, they will happily eat these waffles. 

Also, we have cut down on extra calories by making them with a small amount of oil, and keeping them crispy and flavourful.

INGREDIENTS FOR SAVOURY SEMOLINA WAFFLES

1. Semolina - we have used a mix of fine and coarse semolina so that you get a delicious texture. However, if you only have one, then it is best to use fine semolina. 

2. Chickpea flour - also called gram flour or besan. This is required to bind the waffles. This also adds some protein to the recipe as semolina alone is high on carbs

3. Natural yogurt - we have used full fat natural yogurt but you can also use low fat yogurt

4. Mixed vegetables:

Pumpkin - we will need grated pumpkin. Use a box grater, mandoline or food processor to speed up the process

Green beans

Red cabbage

White cabbage

Sweet corn kernels

5. Green chilli & ginger

6. Turmeric powder

7. Baking soda - optional

8. Oil to spray waffle maker plates
