Tandoolache ghavane (rice flour pancakes)  
   
10 pancakes

Ingredients

2 cups rice flour

cumin seeds

1 small onion

salt to taste
4 green chilies  

Method
1. Soak rice flour in water or buttermilk. The batter should be of spreadable consistency, but should not be too thick or too dilute.
2. Chop onion into thin vertical pieces. Chop green chilies.
3. Add onion pieces, chilies, cumin seeds and salt to the batter and mix.
4. Heat a griddle.
6. Once the griddle is hot enough, reduce the heat and grease it with 2 tsp oil.
7. Now quickly spread the batter over the griddle. Make it even and as thin as possible.
8. Once the bottom side is golden brown, flip and cook the top.
9. Remove and top with ghee. Serve hot with coconut chutney.

Variation :
For a different flavor, add crushed garlic cloves and chopped coriander leaves. Instead of rice flour, take 2 cups rice, soak it for 5-6 hours. Drain the water and grind it into a fine paste.
