Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch Idea:

My family and I love both sweet and masala waffles. We even sometimes prefer a minimalist waffle dinner with just chopped and sliced fruits and some pure maple syrup or honey. Soft, fluffy and melt-in-the-mouth waffles get a big accolade in my kitchen. I always use the store-bought protein flapjack or waffle mix(Kodiak Cakes), because it is easy to use and it is protein packed. This time, however, I wanted to try something different. That’s when the idea of savory masala waffle with salad came. Our very own chickpea flour or garbanzo bean flour is the star of this dish. Mixed with spices and herbs, this waffle mixture gives the best result that I could ever have expected. The spicy waffles even taste great as a waffle salad. Just add this moong tabbouleh and some greens and season with my spicy strawberry dressing, and you are going to love this quick masala waffle and waffle salad.Jump to the recipe

Savory Masala Waffle:

Chickpea flour has a dry texture. Therefore, adding some dressing to this waffle is a good choice. If you are serving hot, the waffle tastes great without a trace of dryness on the palate. However, leftover ones can feel a bit dry. Thus, the salad is a great option if you have some left-over masala waffles in your refrigerator.

This masala waffle is a great source of protein. You can make it sweet too by skipping the spices and herbs. We have tried both and loved it. Here is a picture of the sweet waffle with the same chickpea flour batter minus the herbs and spices.

And The Waffle Salad:

Then comes the heart of the recipe, the moong tabbouleh. Unlike the traditional wheat tabbouleh, this is a gluten-free salad. Just soak and cook the whole green moong with enough water, salt and a pinch of curry powder. Then add cucumbers, tomatoes, greens, strawberry and the dressing of course.Masala waffle

The spicy strawberry dressing is a bomb on the palate. It has a combination of sweet and spicy flavor and still it is a lighter dressing that you can eat with your salads. Just add the dressing to your waffle, toss well so that the chickpea waffles soak the dressing and add the tabbouleh to finish. A day-old waffles work wonderfully for this salad as they soak the dressing really well. With the combination of curry flavored moong tabbouleh, they taste great.

Nutrition Facts:

For people with diabetes and those looking for a healthier gluten-free diet, chickpea flour is a great choice. That’s because:

  • It is an excellent source of protein and fiber
  • High fiber helps to maintain hunger spike and regulate blood sugar
  • Plus, it can help maintaining your bad fat and cholesterol too.

Because it is easy to use and it is protein packed. This time, however, I wanted to try something different. That’s when the idea of masala waffle came.
