Gluten Free Waffle 1

These waffles started of with wanting to create a healthier version of the very famous and addictive fried Sindhi Pakoras. Originally made from gram flour, sliced onions, green chillies, dried pomegranate seeds and coriander, the pakoras are deep friend ” TWICE ” to achieve an incredibly crunchy texture. The thing is, once you’ve eaten one, there’s no stopping, till you’ve polished off nearly a dozen. Now there’s got to be a healthier option right ?!?!!

Gluten Free Waffle 2

I’ve figured, most gluten free flours aren’t full bodied enough to hold up, but somehow in a waffle machine they tend to behave themselves. And what I love most is they turn CRISPY – the key to my heart. Almost everything tastes better with a crunch and this waffle will not disappoint. I left them in for a whole 8 minutes. I even make extra batches ( freezer friendly ) and chuck them back in the waffle machine to toast them. These Gluten Free waffles have a whole lot of flavours going on so don’t expect anything subtle. They are accompanied with a creamy refreshing dressing, and some pesto. As always I went with the ingredients I had lying around, and made these in literally 15 mins. So you too could get creative and add or take ingredients. Play with different herbs and greens, switch the dressing to salsa, or chutney … just try out different combinations till you get something you like. What I love about these is that they are so quick to make and ideal to have for brunch / lunch / anytime snack.
