How are you’ll doing? Hope you are keeping yourself warm and safe.  
What have I been up to?? 
Not a lot.  Watched a very bad movie, infact the worst Indian movie ever and it had the biggest cast.  
Ran 6 miles today after taking a break for a while, feels AMAZING.
Ohhh and by the way, watching episodes of STAR GATE.  I remember watching it long back.  Now on Season 2 and I am quite addicted now. After the boys are in bed, hubby and I watch at least four episodes, loving it.
And also made a huge batch of these waffles.

I am always impressed with my waffle machine, it never ceases to amaze me. I remember owning a waffle maker even before I knew a single recipe for a good waffle.  
Waffles are a staple in our home.  The kids can have sweet waffles everyday.  Every once in a while, I love to make these. I’ve put my waffle iron to good use, and quite shocked that it still serves me after years of tormenting it with spice after spice.

SPICY WHOLE GRAIN WAFFLES

Ingredients:
1/2 cup finger millet flour(ragi)
1/2 cup black lentil flour 
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup fat free milk 
1 egg
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 green chillies finely diced
2 whole carrots grated finely
optional-chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds(2 tsp together)

Method:
1. In a large bowl, mix the millet flour, black lentil flour, chickpea flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, soda and sugar.  Keep aside.
2.  In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg, fat free milk, vegetable oil, green chillies and carrots.
3. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together well till incorporated.  You can add the chia, hemp and flax seeds and incorporate it.
Let the mixture sit in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight.
4. Bake it in a waffle maker or you can make small pancakes and cook at low temperature.  
ENJOY!!

Quick Note:
You can made thick pancakes out of the batter.  That is how we make in India.
I made a sandwich with alfalfa sprouts and some green and date chutney.  You can also serve it with some chana masala or chicken curry(yum).  
You can make this vegan by omitting the egg.  The result is pretty good.
You can substitute the fat free milk for unsweetened soy milk.
You can make the waffles and freeze it and toast whenever ready to eat. Let the waffles cool well before freezing. 
Serve with a gravy or make waffle sandwiches.
