Our Review Factors
What were we looking for? A regular pancake is made using a mix of refined flour, eggs, butter, and sugar. Slurrp Farm Millet Pancake Mix Classic is made using millets and contains no refined sugar. We are looking for delicious pancakes with a nutty millet-like taste and texture along with a clean list of ingredients.
Here is our list of the review factors for Slurrp Farm Classic Vanilla Pancake & Waffle Mix :
Pancakes made using millets tend to have an earthy and nutty taste, entirely different from a regular pancake. Since it is a kid-friendly pancake mix, the overall taste should be delicious, and they should enjoy it. We also checked for level of sweetness as pancakes are often topped with syrups, jams and compote.
Did these turn out to be fluffy, light, and airy or are they hard, dense and coarse? We cannot expect the textures of a maida-based pancake to be similar to that of a millet one. Millet pancakes have a slightly grainier/coarse mouthfeel.
3. Nutrition Label
The label says that this pancake mix contains no refined sugar, no wheat, and has no preservatives. How well does the brand back up these claims? Since the target audience is children, we closely examine and expect a clean list of ingredients. We check what are the alternative sources of sugar used. And are they healthy?
When it comes to nutrition, millets bring with them a lot of health benefits. We check the nutrition label on the pack to find out the calories, protein, total fat, sugar, and other minerals.
We buy a pack of ready mix to add convenience and save up our prep-time. In this segment, we gauge the following :
How easily does the dry powder combine with the addition of melted butter/ eggs and milk? Is the batter smooth in consistency or appears lumpy?
The inclusion of millets requires a longer cooking time when compared to refined flour. How long does it take for these pancakes to cook?

Slurrp Farm Classic Vanilla Pancake & Waffle Mix – Detailed Review
How was our overall experience while reviewing Slurrp Farm Classic Vanilla Pancake & Waffle Mix?
Product details, dry inspection & aroma: Packed attractively in an orange pouch, with cute animal illustrations. The pack is non-resealable. A 150 gm net weight pack is available for a price of Rs. 149. It has a shelf life of 12 months.
The dry powder has a beige color and a semi-coarse texture. The sweet and fruity aroma of vanilla was noticeable as we opened the pack. We also noticed an underlying aroma of millets.
Nutrition Label: Slurrp Farm Classic Vanilla Pancake & Waffle Mix contains the following ingredients – Whole grain flours (75%) (sorghum flour, oat flour, foxtail millet (flour), Raw unrefined sugar, Natural banana powder, Natural vanilla powder, Baking powder, Flaxseed powder, Baking soda, and Salt.
We appreciate the clean list of ingredients with no refined flour and no refined sugar. The ingredient list comprises 75% of whole grain flours. Raw unrefined sugar has been used which is a slightly better alternative to white sugar.
Per 100 gm, Slurrp Farm Classic Vanilla Pancake & Waffle Mix offers 370 kcal of energy, 76 gm of protein, 18 gm carb, 15 gm total sugar, and 4 gm of total fat.
Method Of Preparation: We started by mixing about 75 gm of this powder mix with one egg and ½ cup of milk.
We prepared the pancakes using our Indus Cast Iron Tawa in the following manner.
- Firstly, we preheated the tawa and greased it with butter.
- Then we poured a ladle full of the batter and allowed it to cook on each side.
- Lastly, we also greased the sides of the pancake with about 1/4 th tsp of butter.
Cooking Process Highlights: Here we highlight what we observed during our cooking process. Unlike a regular refined flour batter, this batter was not of a smooth consistency. Nonetheless, the batter was easy to pour. Our pancakes took about 3 to 4 minutes to cook on each side. Since it includes millets, the cooking time was slightly longer.
Do note, that if you follow the instructions as per the pack, it will yield thin-sized pancakes. But if you wish to prepare thicker pancakes, you can reduce the quantity of milk to 1/4th cup or less.
Taste & Texture: If added in disproportionate quantities, millet based dishes can become unlikable (especially if the target audience is kids). Despite using 75% of millets, the taste and texture of these pancakes is commendable. On cooking, the pancakes emit a prominent aroma of vanilla.
A characteristic feature of millet is that they lend a slightly rough bite. We observed the same here. The final result is a stack of fluffy and soft pancakes. It is not hard or chewy.
Taste-wise, we have no complaints. The pancakes have a mild sweetness with a delicious vanilla flavor. At no point did we feel that the pancakes were eggy. The sugar adds a nice golden color on top, enhancing the overall taste. Additionally, the presence of salt cuts down on the sweetness.
