The impact of replacement of wheat flour with finger millet and pearl millet flours in Belgian waffle was evaluated for quality characteristics and nutritional composition. Control waffles where no millet flours are present have harder texture with a shear force of 35.86N while the same for the experimental waffles ranges from 19.68N to 27.02N. The waffles which have 30% and 40% finger millet respectively showed the highest acceptability in terms of sensory attributes. Replacement of wheat flour with millets did not have any negative impact on the crumb integrity and structure of the waffles. Use of millets in the formulation resulted in increased total dietary fiber, reduced carbohydrate and caloric value of the waffles. All the experimental waffles exhibited higher values of slowly digestible starch (SDS) and resistant starch (RS) fractions as compared to control. The highest amounts of ISDF (6.46%) and SDF (1.29%) were detected in waffles which have 30% finger millet and 20% pearl millet. A significant increase in the mineral content in all the experimental waffles was observed. Use of millets can effectively enhance the nutritional profile of waffles.
