Soaking the Rice:
Wash the rice thoroughly and soak it in water overnight (approximately 10 hours). This will allow the rice to soften and make it easier to grind into a smooth batter.
Preparing the Batter:
After the soaking time is over, strain the water from the rice and transfer the rice to a mixer jar.
Add ginger, green chilli, boiled potatoes, and a little water to the mixer jar with the rice.
Grind the mixture into a smooth batter. The ginger and green chilli will add flavour to the pancakes.
Mixing the Ingredients:
Transfer the ground rice batter to a mixing bowl.
Add suji (semolina) to the batter, which will give the pancakes a nice texture.
Now, add chopped onions, chopped capsicum, grated carrot, and chopped coriander to the batter.
Gently mix all the ingredients together until well combined. The vegetables will add colour, crunch, and nutrition to the pancakes.
Preparing the Pan:
Heat a flat pan on the stove and add oil to it.
Sprinkle a pinch of sesame seeds on the hot oil for added flavour.
Cooking the Pancakes:
Pour a ladleful of the prepared batter onto the hot pan to form a pancake. You can adjust the size as per your preference.
Cover the pan with a lid to cook the pancake evenly.
Cook the pancake on medium-low flame for 1-2 minutes until the bottom side becomes crispy.
Flipping and Cooking:
Once the bottom side of the pancake is crispy and golden brown, carefully flip it to cook the other side.
Cook the pancake on the other side for another 1-2 minutes until it turns golden brown as well.
Repeat the Process:
Repeat the process with the remaining batter, adding oil and sesame seeds for each pancake.
Serving the Rice Pancakes:
Once all the rice pancakes are cooked, transfer them to a serving plate.
Rice pancakes can be served hot with a variety of accompaniments such as chutney, ketchup, or yoghurt.
