  • Place the rice and lentils in a food processor with the chile peppers, ginger, jaggery, and salt. Process until smooth, and mix in the carrot and spinach. Continue to process until smooth and well mixed.

  • Heat the oil in a tava (or large skillet) over medium-low heat. Thinly and evenly spread the batter into the tava. Cover, and cook 15 minutes, or until browned and set enough to turn. Turn with a spatula, and continue cooking until browned and cooked through.

Very reminiscent of hole-in-the-wall vegetarian cafe fare -- I do believe that is a compliment! But the lentils & rice alone are way too bland -- I added some curry garlic and a bit of lemon to the mix. The recipe was somewhat confusing - are we really supposed to spread the entire batter into a skillet and flip the whole thing when ready? That sounded very daunting; I made patties which worked just fine. Topping with a mint/yogurt sauce or chutney is a good idea - it's pretty dry otherwise. I probably won't make this for dinner again but will make a bunch to freeze - they make a great lunch. Do not attempt to make this without a food processor! Agh! Read More
