Delicious and Nutritious: Ishva Kodo Millet Pancake Recipe


Pancakes are a beloved breakfast staple, but have you tried making them with Ishva kodo millet? This wholesome grain adds a nutty flavor and a boost of nutrition to your morning routine. Here’s a delightful recipe to incorporate Ishva kodo millet into your pancakes.


  • 1 cup Ishva kodo millet flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 cup milk (or plant-based milk for a vegan option)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. Prepare the Ishva Kodo Millet Flour:

    • If you don't have Ishva kodo millet flour, you can make it by grinding Ishva kodo millet in a blender until it becomes a fine powder.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients:

    • In a large bowl, combine Ishva kodo millet flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Mix Wet Ingredients:

    • In another bowl, whisk together mashed banana, milk, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. Do not overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  5. Rest the Batter:

    • Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the baking powder and soda to react, giving you fluffy pancakes.
  6. Cook the Pancakes:

    • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or oil.
    • Pour a ladleful of batter onto the skillet for each pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then flip and cook until golden brown on both sides.
  7. Serve:

    • Stack the pancakes on a plate and serve warm with your favorite toppings such as fresh fruits, yogurt, nuts, or a drizzle of honey.


  • Adjust the sweetness to your liking by varying the amount of honey or maple syrup.
  • For extra texture, add chopped nuts or seeds into the batter.
  • These pancakes freeze well. Make a batch and store them in the freezer for a quick breakfast option.


Enjoy these Ishva kodo millet pancakes as a nutritious twist on a classic breakfast treat. They are packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals, making them not only delicious but also a wholesome choice to start your day right.
