Left over rice chilla/pancake

Hello friends! Looking at title above you must be wondering what is this? Actually, I did not know what to name this dish so just named it with the main ingredient I used here. I had some rice left over and kept thinking where to use this and that's when this idea popped up. Eager to know what I made, so let's proceed with ingredients and method.


Some leftover cooked rice
1 cup wheat flour

2 green chillies chopped fine
1 small piece of chopped ginger
1 small bunch of coriander leaves chopped
1tsp coriander seeds
1tsp red chilli powder
a pinch of asafoetida
salt to taste
1 tbsp oil + more for making pancakes
water as required


In a pan add wheat flour and add other things minus the extra oil. Add water to get dosa batter consistency. In fact make it little thinner to make it easy to pour. Heat a dosa tawa add some oil and pour just like dosa. Let it cook on one side. If needed put little oil on side to make it easy to turn. Once the bottom is done, flip over to cook other side. Once cooked, serve hot with chutney, curd or even tomato ketchup.
Left over rice is used up in nice way in a new dish. Hope you like it. Over to you for feedback.

Here is step by step pics.

You can add vegetables to enhance the flavours and make it even more healthy.
