This started as a test recipe,because the flour mix i made is for making Dosa.I thought why not try to make waffle with this flour mix ,but my only concern was to get a fluffier waffle because in dosa all you need is to get a crisp Dosa so no need for any other extra ingredients to make it fluffier.
Then i though an Egg will do but normally baking powder and Baking Soda is needed in any cake or bread or waffle recipe to make it airy and fluffier.
But for me the amount of baking soda or powder is the problem,every recipe i check has different amounts its so confusing.So i thought lets put Eno(Eno when mixed with water creates air bubbles just like baking soda with Vinegar(which can also be tried in this recipe)) .
The batter became so light and fluffier and the end result is astonishing.
so if you are like me with how much leavening agent to add to any baking dish try to use ENO and see,for me it end up to be success ,may be it will be the same for you too.
