    Baking

Steps

  • Soak the rice and dals together for two hours.
  • Drain.
  • Place all the ingredients except cabbage in a blender.
  • Add enough water to make a pancake-like batter and blitz until you have a slightly coarse but even batter. The slight coarseness will give you crispier pancakes.
  • Remove the batter to a bowl and mix in the cabbage.
  • Let the batter stand about 10 minutes, then mix well.On a heated griddle sprayed with some oil, spread about cup of the batter into an approximately five-inch pancake.Cook until the top starts to dry and the underside is golden brown. Flip and cook the other side until golden spots appear.
  • Serve hot with chutney. I love this with some tomato chutney.
