It is difficult to guess that these pancakes are made without eggs. they are fluffy and have a nice soft texture. Hence it also becomes difficult to believe that these are made with whole wheat flour. With this recipe you can make one of the best pancakes with whole wheat flour and without eggs.

For the recipe I have used organic chakki ground atta (whole wheat flour). You can use any brand of whole wheat flour. If the wheat flour is ground in a mill, then do sieve the flour once or twice before using.

These pancakes are lightly sweet and not very sweet or sweet. for sweet pancakes you can always add more sugar. You can even skip adding sugar for a sugar free pancake. For a healthier variation add jaggery or coconut sugar or palm jaggery. The recipe serves 6 pancakes and can be easily halved or doubled or tripled.

Serve eggless pancakes with maple syrup and a side of fruits. If using honey, then pour honey on the pancakes when they become warm. You can even use dates syrup or jaggery syrup. Chocolate lovers can use chocolate syrup to serve with these fluffy whole wheat pancakes.

  1. Hi I have tried a lot of your recipes n all of them turned out amazingly! Sadly this one failed me. I did everything as you instructed but my batter was too thick(more like dough) so I kept adding hot milk to the point that I almost added total of more than 3 cups to bring it to pourable consistency. After that when I poured it on hot non stick tawa, it was too sticky and it didn’t cook from top n I wasn’t able to turn it. It had no structure or shape. I am not sure what went wrong exactly. Was it too much milk that made the batter extremely sticky? I used ground chakki whole wheat atta. Can you please help me out?

    1. Did you use the correct measuring cups. I have here used 250 ml cups but the same recipe can also be made with 240 ml cups. 3 cups of milk for 1 cup of flour is way too much and will yield a watery liquid consistency. So if you make pancakes with this consistency, you will not be able to flip it and it won’t have any shape. Yes it is too much milk. The batter is more like a chilla batter and has the same consistency. Try sifting the flour twice or thrice as you are using a chakki ground flour. The packaged ones do not need sifting, but if you are grinding flour in a mill, then it is better if you sieve it. I hope this helps.

  2. The pancake I made took more than 10 minutes to cook on low flame yet it was liquidy between the top and bottom layers. Could you please help

    1. Looks like the pancake has not cooked. The pancake will be soft and fluffy but will be also be firm. Try increasing the heat more and that should help. Depending on the thickness and heaviness of the pan the heat can be adjusted from low to medium.
