Radish Millet Pancake with Dates Sauce

My new innovation for kids lunch box !!!

I have added millet flour along with regular whole wheat flour to make this pancake. You can add any vegetable of your choice, I choose radish because this is the vegetable that kids usually fuzz about eating them as poriyal or kootu.

Radish has lots of nutrients in them. It is loaded with folate, riboflavin, fibre potassium, copper, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B.
