About Savoury Waffles With Vegetables Recipe
Two days ago, this occurred. To serve these waffles as finger food, I cut them into bite-sized chunks and served them as tasty savoury waffles. Everyone enjoyed them.
The same breakfast was recreated for yesterday morning’s breakfast, except that the ingredients weren’t regular. Waffles were inspired by popular Indian snacks veggie pakoras. With lots of veggies goodness and spices in them, these chickpea flour waffles are light and crispy!
Gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and high protein. Ideal for breakfast or snacking. Waffles made with savoury ingredients are a perfect comfort food these days, as we crave comfort food more often. Veggies and spices in crispy golden waffles, what’s not to love?
Gram Flour vs Chickpea Flour
There is a difference between besan (gram flour) and chickpea flour! The flour from chana dal or split brown chickpeas is called besan or gram flour. White chickpeas are ground up to make chickpea flour or garbanzo flour. Both have the same taste but are different flours. As a finer and milder flour, besan is made from brown chickpeas.
A white chickpea flour made of garbanzo beans is a lot coarser, dryer, and has a more bitter flavor. I loved how Vegan Richa has explained these dals or lentils very well which you can read about the differences and where to use each flour here.
- 1 cup – Cauliflower finely chopped
- 1 medium – Green bell pepper finely chopped
- 1 medium – Red bell pepper finely chopped
- 1 medium – Onion finely chopped
- 1/2 cup – Coriander leaves chopped
- 2 tbsp – Rice flour (optional)
- 4 – Green chilli chopped
- 1 tbsp – Carom seeds
- 1/2 tsp – Turmeric powder
- 1 tbsp – Red chili powder
- 1/2 tsp – Baking soda
- Salt to taste
- 1 inch – Ginger finely grated
- 1 cup – Almond flour/ chickpea flour
- 2 tbsp – Olive oil for brushing waffle maker
Vegetables – I have used my favorite veggies like cauliflower finely chopped, green bell pepper finely chopped, red bell pepper finely chopped, onion finely chopped, coriander leaves chopped, green chilies chopped and ginger chopped finely. I have used a vegetable chopper to finely chop these veggies.
Rice flour – This helps to make the waffle crispy for sure but it’s optional.
Seasoning – Use carom seeds(ajwain), turmeric powder, red chili powder, baking soda, and salt to taste.
Oil – Just a little to drizzle on waffle maker.
Almond flour/ Chickpea flour – You can use any flour or you can mix them half and a half for a new variation.
Baking soda – Helps to make the waffle fluffy.

How To Make Savoury Waffles With Vegetables Recipe Step By Step With Photo:
- Prepare the vegetables by chopping them finely and adding them to a bowl. You can also process the vegetables into a coarse paste using the food processor.
- Rice flour, chickpea flour, salt, spices, cilantro, baking soda, and cilantro should be added at this point, and mix them well.
- Stir in one cup of water until the mixture is well combined. It really depends on how much moisture leaks from your vegetables as well as the chickpea flour or almond flour you use when you make this.
- We will start making our waffles after the mixture has been set for five minutes.
- Prepare your waffle maker by drizzling some oil onto your waffle iron and then close the lid and preheat the waffle maker for 2 minutes. I like my waffles to be nice and crispy and brown.
- After preheating use a spatula to spread the thick batter evenly on your waffle maker. If you want crispy waffles, keep the batter at a medium thickness. The thick batter takes longer to cook and softens faster.
- Before closing the lid, drizzle a few drops of oil on top as well. The browning and crisping process depends on your preference. Planning for the inactive time is important, as these waffles usually take a lot of time to crisp up. Also, make sure the batter is thin, otherwise, it gets bready. You can check-in between and drizzle a little oil if needed to make it extra crisp.
- It may take some experimenting to find the right waffle maker timer for your iron. It’s important to make sure the waffles are crispy and the vegetables are fully cooked. Make sure you cook it to a golden brown before serving.
- Remove the waffle from the waffle maker with the help of a tong.
- Do this all for the rest of the batter. After cooling off for about 30 minutes, these waffles will soften a bit as they cool. They are best when they are warm and crispy. You can serve these with your favorite dip, salsa, chutney, or other dressings of your choice.
Important Suggestion To Keep In Mind
- Chickpea flour and besan should be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry place like other types of flour. The freshness lasts up to 6 months, and longer if refrigerated.
- Like pakora fritters, I like my waffles crispy and brown, so I drizzle some oil onto my waffle iron
- Warm, crispy waffles are best when they are served, they will soften as they cool off after a few minutes.
- I had to experiment with my waffle maker timer to find what works for me. So you need to find yours. You just need to cook it until it is golden crisp to ensure the vegetables are fully cooked and the waffles are crispy.
You can serve them with ketchup or green chutney.
I will not recommend storing them as they will not be crispy if stored but yes if you are okay to eat them as soft texture then you can store them in air tight container for 2 to 3 days.
And when you want to consume just reheat in a microwave.Print
