  • You have to wash and soak red rice for 5– 6 hours. Drain water and grind the soaked red rice, tender coconut and cooked red rice into a smooth batter.
  • Red rice batter should be of pouring consistency (bit watery) If the batter appears to be thick, then you may adjust with water. You may add salt and cumin to the red rice batter and mix well.
  • Heat pan/griddle. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread the batter in a circular pattern.
  • Cover the pan and cook on a medium flame for 30 seconds or 2-3 minutes on sim. You may flip over and cook the other side for a minute.
