Gluten free Belgian waffles

My love with Belgian waffles may have started with trying waffles at the food court The Belgian Waffle Co. They serve waffles with varieties of fillings like Nutella, dark chocolate, fruits and nuts, ice cream etc.

Then I had prepare waffles for an event which was showcasing Belgium movies and they needed to serve some authentic Belgium food and I catered Flamiche and Belgian waffles.

The technique of cooking flour batter between hot plates dates back to the ancient era. But the origin of modern waffles is said to be in Greece , where these flat cakes, called “obelios,” were cooked between two metal plates. Waffles are prepared generally with refined flour but me and my daughter are gluten intolerant, so decided to give a try with the gluten free flours and the buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta) gave the best texture. If you do not want chocolate waffles, just replace the cocoa powder with the same quantity of buckwheat flour.
