Leftover Rice Chila / Pancake

 Yes , chila / dosa from leftover rice . 

 After seeing her event announcement, I searched her blog for the recipes, the first recipe I came across was this chila. As I had a small cup of rice soaked in the water overnight was there, so I made this chila for my breakfast on Sunday.

 I liked this dosa a lot . No one will find leftover rice is added in this dosa. It  was so delicious , for me no sidedish is needed to have this dosa.
Requirements :
Leftover cooked rice – 1 small cup
Wheat flour – 2 cup
Onion – 1
Green chilli – 3
Chopped Ginger – ½ tsp
Chopped Coriander leaves – 3 tbs
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Asafoetida – a pinch
Curry leaves – a sprig
Salt as needed

Method :
As I used the rice soaked in water , it is easy to mash with the hand. If the rice is not soaked , grind with little water.
In a bowl , add the mashed rice , wheat flour , asafoetida, chili powder and salt. Mix well.

Add in the required water and make the batter to the required consistency.
Add in the chopped onion , green chillies , ginger , coriander leaves , curry leaves and mix well.
Heat the griddle , pour a ladle full of batter and spread into a thick small chila.

Pour a spoon of oil and flip to other side and cook on both sides.
Repeat with the remaining batter.
For me no sidedish is needed.

Chilas Can be served with coconut chutney.
Leftover rice chilas are ready to serve.
