  • Nonstick Griddle

Pancake batter preparation

  • 1 cup oats flour I use rolled oats to make oats flour
  • ½ cup semolina replace with chickpea flour to make glutenfree pancakes
  • ¼ cup rice flour
  • 1 cup cabbage shredded
  • 1 cup onion chopped finely
  • 1 cup bell peppers chopped finely
  • ¼ cup carrot grated
  • 2 tablespoon green chilies adjust heat as per taste
  • 2.5 teaspoon salt or adjust as per taste
  • ¼ cup green coriander chopped finely
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt replace with plain water to make vegan
  • 2 cup water to make the batter
  • any preffered cooking oil I use olive oil spray

Coriander sauce

  • 1 bunch coriander
  • 4 garlic pods
  • 1 lemon juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1 inch ginger
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • I use rolled oats to make oats four at home. No need to roast if using it immediately. Just grind them until smooth powder and prepare the batter.
    1 cup oats flour
  • In a mixing bowl add all three types of flour and whisk them nicely. (pic 1-4)
    1 cup oats flour, ¼ cup rice flour, ½ cup semolina
    Adding all three flours and mixing them well in a glass bowl.
  • In the flour mixture add water and make a smooth paste. Add water 1 cup at a time. There should not be any lump in the batter at this stage (pic 5-6). Finally, add all other ingredients and adjust salt. (pic 7)
    The batter should be thick, not runny. Taste the batter at this time and adjust spices like salt & heat as per taste. (pic 8)
    1 cup cabbage, 1 cup onion, 1 cup bell peppers, ¼ cup carrot, 2 tablespoon green chilies, 2.5 teaspoon salt, ¼ cup green coriander, 2 cup water, ¼ cup greek yogurt
    Using water to make smooth batter and adding all ingredients.
  • Heat a nonstick griddle on medium heat. Hover your hand on top of the griddle to check if it is hot enough (pic 9). Spray oil or skip it, place ⅓ cup of batter, and spread in a small circle (pic 10-11). Cook 2-3 min until the bottom layer is golden brown.
    Apply oil on the pancake and flip it on another side. Cook again for 2-3 minutes. You need to cook these till golden color. (pic 12)
    Once cooking is done, transfer them to a cooling rack. Serve immediately with the sauces like coriander chutney, cucumber raita, or pesto sauce.
    any preffered cooking oil

Nutritional Value is for 1 pancake. 1 Serving includes 4 pancakes.


    • This batter is perfect to make ahead and save time in the morning. Just mix everything together and store it in the fridge for 6-7 days easily. 
    • If rolled oats are not available then quick oats will also work with the recipe.
    • Use a good-quality nonstick pan so that you can make pancakes without oil.
    • Substitute Greek yogurt with plant-based yogurt and proceed with the rest of the recipe. Or you can completely skip out yogurt with plain water and make these vegan vegetable pancakes.
    • This recipe is not gluten-free. Oats is gluten-free, just replace semolina with chickpea powder to make it a completely gluten-free pancake recipe.
