Rice flour pancake from the state of Telangana/Andhra Pradesh, which bursts with the flavors of ginger, garlic, green chilies, curry leaves, and coriander leaves, has the bite of chana dal, sesame seeds, roasted peanuts, etc. is Sarva Pindi. It is also known as Ginnappa/Tapala Pindi. It is very flavorous as well as healthy. Rice recipes especially rice flour recipes are my favorite. Although this Indian recipe for pancakes calls for a number of ingredients it is very simple to make. Just mixing of all the ingredients and spreading on a cooking pan and tadaa! It can be served for breakfast with chutney of your choice.
Rice flour dishes are so soulful. We use a lot of gram flour for our dinner recipes because gram flour is a very common ingredient for Rajasthani recipes, which are frequently prepared in my kitchen. Likewise, I love to use rice flour for our breakfast recipes. Let’s have a closer look at these pancake ingredients:
Rice Flour / Rice Powder: Rice flour is easily available at the grocers etc. You can even get a pack of it online. It is a healthy and gluten-free ingredient and therefore should be included in the diet.
Fresh ingredients: This is the best part of this recipe. Lots of fresh ingredients are used to flavor Sarva Pindi. Curry leaves, coriander leaves, green chilies, ginger, garlic zing up this rice flour dish.
Spices: Well, turmeric powder and red chili powder is used to make Sarva Pindi. But I skipped both these ingredients and did not miss them at all. You can add or omit these as per your choice.
As already mentioned rice flour is a healthy ingredient. It is gluten-free. It has a good quantity of beneficial fiber. There are quite a few rice flour recipes on the blog, such as Pathiri, rice potato snack, rice balls, etc.
