Breakfast in my house is usually a typical Indian spread – either uppittu/upma/dosas/idlis. I cook both lunch and breakfast in the mornings. V tells me to take a break once in a while when we can just eat cereals. But breakfast for me has to be something hot and savory!. Since he loves waffles, I bought a waffle iron last year. I made waffles a couple of times, then it sat in one corner (Thank god for lot of cabinets in my kitchen – but they are all overflowing now!). Yesterday I thought Ishaan would love these and I wanted to bring out the waffle iron. Anything that looks interesting is a hit with the kid. He looked at it and he was super excited. (He hates all kinds of sweets, so he didn’t eat much! I am planning to make a savory version soon for him). These came out super delicious. I follow easy way out and just mix everything in one go. It took less than 10mins to prepare the batter. You can increase the amount of flax seed powder, I was worried that the smell of it would be too strong for us.
1 and 1/2 cups wheat flour
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tea spn baking powder
1/2 tea spn baking soda
1/4 cup grated zucchini
2 tbl spn butter
2 tbl spn sugar
A pinch salt
1 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 tbl spn flax seed powder
Mix everything well.
Spray a waffle iron with some baking spray. Then pour the batter on it. (Follow the instructions on the waffle iron to make them).
Serve with maple syrup.
Serves : 3
Preparation time : 20

Looks good and would be over-the-top awesome as a savory version, methinks! I’ve been pondering whether to buy a waffle iron…do you find that you use yours a lot?
I don’t use it very frequently Nupur. But Ishaan was super excited, so I may use it more. I will have to make a savory version for that!
Could you please suggest some replacement for egg?
Archana, I have tried similar versions without eggs. I would suggest just leaving it out. You can increase baking soda to 1 tea spn (I usually don’t increase it, the waffles come out a little bit dense, but still good)
Picture perfect waffles ! Do u use regular chapati atta as wheat flour?
Yes chapati atta
Looks so delicious!
Such nice and healthy waffles, kids will surely love this delicous treat …………
Can you suggest any good waffle makers? Which one is your brand?
The waffles look so delicious. The picture made me want to grab a bite right off the computer monitor! sigh..
I will deffy try this after i buy a waffle maker.
I have a Cooks Waffle maker – I bought it from JCPenny when I saw it on sale. I am pretty happy with it so far
Zucchini seems like a unique but tasty ingredient to include in this recipe. Great post.
great waffles. the only change I made wa s separate the whites and yolks and beat the whites until soft peaks are formed and then folded it into the batter very gently. the waffles had a crispy outside …. i will try it with bananas tommorrow.
Hi Shilpa ..
love ur recipes … Have tried waffles before but they do not turn out crisp enough .. I am frm Mumbai and own a Morphy Richards sandwich & waffle maker … How shld the texture of
a perfect waffle be ?
Have you tried this recipe? This usually makes crispy waffles. Keep it for little longer in the waffle maker to get a brownish color and it will be crispy.
