How Can Orange Millet Pancake Make You Feel Great?
These pancakes balance Vata and Pitta, but aggravate Kapha. Millet is a lighter grain that doesn't sit heavy in the stomach. Its astringent and slightly diuretic qualities mean it's a better option for Kapha types than wheat, but this recipe is still too heavy and sweet for them. The oiliness of ghee and heaviness of eggs means these pancakes are balancing for Vata, unless the diuretic nature of millet increases the urge to urinate excessively. Sweet and gooey, this recipe soothes and cools an overheated digestive tract, making it most suitable for Pitta types.
