What is Sarva Pindi?

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.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Sarva Pindi recipe

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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
