Servings 10 muffins


  • 1 cup Semolina
  • 2 Tbsp Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1/3 cup Spinach leaves chopped
  • 1/3 cup Carrot grated
  • 1/3 cup Sweet corn kernels I used frozen sweet corn, so I boiled them before using in the recipe
  • 1 Egg Substitute it with 1/4 cup yogurt to make it eggless
  • 1/4 cup Yogurt
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil here
  • 1/4 cup Shredded cheese I used Mexican blend cheese here, substitute it with Cheddar cheese if available, or any other
  • 1 1/2 tsp Mixed spices I used a sprinkle of - Black pepper powder, Italian Seasoning, Red Chili Flakes and Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute. But feel free to use any favorite spices.
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Water As per batter consistency needed, I used 2 Tbsp


  • Sift together semolina, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Dry ingredients are ready.
  • In another bowl, whisk egg and add oil and yogurt to it. Now slowly add dry ingredients to this mixture and let it rest for 5 minutes. Semolina tends to absorb the moisture, so add 1 or 2 Tbsp of water in the batter so that it does not look dry. Batter will be thick at this stage.
  • Now add the vegetables - grated carrots, chopped spinach and boiled corn kernels into the batter. Also, add cheese into this batter along with spices and mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Scoop out 2-3 tablespoons of the batter and pour in the lined muffin cups. (I got 10 muffins out of this mixture)
  • Once the oven is preheated, bake the muffins in the oven for around 30 minutes.
  • (Optional) Broil for 1-2 minutes for getting the brown crusty top.
  • Remove the muffins from the oven, and allow them to cool before serving. The semolina veggie muffins are ready to be relished. Serve with any sauce or dip of your choice.


  • Vegetables - This recipe can be made in different forms, with varying vegetables. I am using grated carrots, chopped spinach and sweet corn kernels here. But you can add any possible veggie combination, whatever your kitchen pantry stocks at that time.
  • Cheese - Also, you can try different variation of cheese. I am using Trader Joe's Mexican blend cheese here, but go for whatever is available with you.
  • This recipe can be made into an eggless one by substituting the egg in the recipe with 1/4th cup of yogurt.
