    Method

    • 1Prepare a mixture of the wheat flour and rice flour in a bowl, with green chillies, ginger, cumin seeds, curry leaves and salt to taste
    • 2Add 4 cups of water a little bit at a time and stir well so that there are no lumps in your batter
    • 3Your batter should not be too thick or pasty, neither too fluid and thin. Just enough for a dosa-like pancake to form.
    • 4Heat a tsp of oil on a non-stick tawa, add mustards seeds, and when it splutters add hing.
    • 5Pour the mixture into the pancake batter and mix well.
    • 6Place your tawa on medium heat for 2 minutes, with a light coat of cooking oil.
    • 7Ladle the batter onto the pan, this will resemble a dosa, there should be holes in your pancake.
    • 8Drizzle the required amount of oil on the pancake (if you like to be generous with oil, sesame seed oil is considered very healthy)
    • 9Move the tawa in circular motions at regular intervals to ensure it is cooked evenly.
    • 10Flip the pancake when the bottom starts browning and the edges start lifting up.
    • 11Flip the pancake to let the other side cook (but not for too long – this side remains white!)
    • 12Stir the batter once more before proceeding to make the next pancake, and repeat the process as necessary
