Spicy Waffles with Indian Chard Recipe | DoshaFit®For me, there is little more comforting then the smell of Indian spices slowly roasting in a pot on my stove, releasing their volatile oils and filling my kitchen with a warm and deep aroma, just what these spicy waffles deliver.

This recipe has been with me for some time and it’s my go-to on days when I want to indulge in some spicy and aromatic flavours without reaching for heavy ingredients that make me feel weighed down after I eat.

The waffles are delicious toasted the next day, and I like to eat them and the chard with some hot Mango chutney. Sometimes I go wild and add a big spoon full of full fat organic yogurt on top.

Spicy Waffles with Indian Chard


Indian Chard



600 g Swiss or Rainbow Chard

1 TBSP Ghee

2 tsp Garam Masala

1 Green Chilli

1 Slice Fresh Ginger

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1 tsp Curry powder

2 Medium size Tomatoes

Pepper and Salt to taste


1. Wash and chop the chard.

2. Heat the ghee in a pot on medium heat and roast the garam masala for a few seconds, be careful not to burn it.

3. Add the chopped onions and let them brown slightly. Then add the chilli, ginger, turmeric and curry powder.

4. Chop the tomatoes into big chunks and add them to the spices. Once the tomatoes start to sweat, add the chard, stir well, add a little bit of water and cook on low to medium heat for about 20 minutes.


Once done serve hot and add salt, pepper, and ground coriander to taste.

This chard tastes great with the Spicy Waffles, but it also makes a nice side-dish to go with casseroles, most grains dishes and curries, and even chicken or fish.
