Dal and Rice Pancakes- gluten free


We've been making these South Indian-inspired pancakes and variations on them for weeks now, and the whole family love them! With a high speed blender they are a breeze, and nutritious too. We've even added beetroot or kale to the batter! (Makes  really interestingly-coloured green or pink pancakes!)
Makes 5 large pancakes:
150g whole mung beans
150g rice (you can use whatever rice you have- we use brown)
50g farina (potato flour)
1tsps seasalt
1 tsp Madras curry powder
water to mix

  • Using a high speed blender, grind everything together except for the water.
  • Add water until you have a batter consistency.
  • Fry on both sides using a little oil in the frying pan.

    1. Thanks for the feedback :) They are indeed a filling after school or work snack, or the basis of a meal. I like them with date and tamarind chutney or lime pickle.

  3. I have most of the ingredient and we love to give this a go, just a quick question - do you have to soak the mung beans first.?, I do find them quite hard to blitz otherwise

    1. The Omniblend seems to cope okay- its my husband who makes these and he does grind them dry first. But you could try soaking; it might be easier. Maybe I'll try too and see how it comes out!

    2. Thank you. I will double check and see if I have mung beans, if so I will be making these soon. I have been a bit more proactive with making bookmarked recipes, so hopefully yours will appear on my menu soon. Oh just to let you know, there is a food challenge on pancakes, you may want to share your recipe its good for raising profile of your blog and your blog def. need wider readership.
