Light, crispy and tender Cooked Rice Pancake with Leftover Rice

Cooked Rice Pancake with Leftover Rice

This cooked rice pancake is light and tastes awesome. When I made this pancake for the first time, I had quite some leftover rice from the previous dinner (we eat rice a lot in my home). Initially, I wanted to puree everything to a smooth batter but my lazy bone said just mix and fry. I’m glad I listened.

The pancake comes out like toasted rice with a crispy edge and tender centre. A very delicious combination. It is savoury enough to be eaten with a pepper sauce and flavourful enough to be eaten on its own as a snack. Cooked rice pancake can also be eaten with Pap as a breakfast or with a salad as a light lunch or dinner.

You can add hot sauce to the batter in place of chopped scotch bonnet. Also, replace the all-purpose flour with rice flour for a gluten-free pancake. Try browning it further for a toastier, crunchier taste. The cooked rice should be soft so if you need to, add a little water and cook the leftover rice a little more to soften it.
