Our Review Factors
What are we looking for in Timios Millet Banana Pancake Mix? We are looking for an easy to cook pancake mix with a clean ingredient list and likeable flavors and texture.
Millet based pancakes have an innate earthy, nutty flavor which sets them apart from regular maida-based pancakes. We expected fresh flavors of the bananas and a balanced sweetness level.
As compared to maida-based pancakes, millet pancakes have a slightly grainier/coarse mouthfeel. The elements we examined here are the softness and fluffiness in texture. Do these crisp perfectly along the edges?
In this segment, we look for the sources of sugar used. Is the ingredient list devoid of preservatives, artificial colors & flavors? This being a millet based pancake mix is the quantity of different flours mentioned clearly?
Millet pancakes offer a lot in terms of nutrition. We checked the nutrition label on the pack to find out the calories, protein, fat, and the total sugar.

Timios Millet Banana Pancake Mix – Detailed Review
The pancake mix comes in a pouch pack. The pack has a powder blue color together with yellow detailing. A 150 gm pack is priced at Rs. 149 that can make approximately 6 to 8 pancakes. It has a shelf life of 12 months.
Visually, this pancake mix has a grey-white color. It is coarse to the touch and is not very fine in texture.
This pancake mix has the following ingredients: Organic ragi flour (26%), Organic jowar flour (25%), Organic jaggery powder (25%), Oats, Banana powder (10%), and Baking powder.
The ingredient list looks clean, as it has no preservatives, artificial colors, or additives. The brand uses organic jaggery powder, which is a better alternative as compared to refined sugar.
Per serving size of 25 gm, this pancake mix contains 94.8 kcal of energy, 1.9 gm of protein, 18.5 gm of carbohydrates, 6.3 gm of total sugar, and 0.4 gm of total fat.
How To Prepare
The instructions to prepare the pancakes using this ready mix are as follows :
- Take 1 cup of Timios Pancake Mix with 1 tsp of butter and ½ cup of milk.
- Mix well to form a smooth batter without lumps.
- Warm a flat non-stick pan to medium heat.
- Add butter to the hot pan , pour the batter onto the heated pan and cook well on both sides.
- Pancakes can be served with butter, honey, peanut butter, maple syrup, or freshly cut fruits of your choice.
The pancake batter mixes up well with the other ingredients. It was smooth in consistency and had no lumps.
However, the quantity of milk mentioned had to be adjusted to get a lump-free batter and ideal consistency. So, in addition to the mentioned ½ cup of milk, we added ¼ cup extra to prepare the batter.
We recommend cooking these pancakes on low to medium heat since millet-based pancakes take slightly longer to cook. Cooking them on high heat increases the chances of burning them.
These pancakes have a nice and innate earthiness due to the presence of ragi and jowar flours used. These are delicately sweetened. Because we cooked them in butter, this developed a slightly savory taste.
However, we were not able to get the taste of banana powder are there is no overpowering flavor of jaggery. Nonetheless, these were quite tasty.
We tasted these pancakes as it is and with sliced bananas and date syrup. While serving these to kids, make sure to drizzle some maple syrup and top it with some fruits.
Despite being a millet pancake mix, the final pancakes turned out super fluffy and soft. They had beautiful crisp edges. A point of appreciation is that these pancakes retained their softness even when we tasted these again after 15 to 20 minutes. Loved how brilliantly these pancakes had risen.
- Super convenient to prepare.
- Mixes up easily.
- Thumbs up for the soft and fluffy texture.
- Innate earthy flavor.
- Devoid of synthetic preservatives and artificial colors.
- These rise beautifully.
- The taste of the banana powder and natural caramel flavor of jaggery was almost negligible here.
