Here is a delicious, tummy-friendly pancake made of grated potatoes and bajra flour, perked up with onions, coriander and other lovely ingredients. Interestingly, this combination of ingredients also works against the tummy acids, keeping them under control.

Just make sure you don’t rush when cooking the Potato Bajra Pancake. Let it cook slowly, so that the grated potato roasts well and gives a crunchy texture.

Serve along with a glass of Apple Cinnamon Milkshake to keep acidity further away.
