Palada / Rice Crepes

 have lost count ; i really don't remember the number of times Sabina Aunty has fed us with all her yummy food,  and she has been giving us a full course meal on every Ramzan  without fail. As kids my brother and i used to wait for yummy, pathiri ( rice chaathis ), ney choru ( ghee rice ), parotta, chicken fry, mutton curry and much more, and she never left out my favourite " Palada " , and softest yummy dosa, I've ever had in my life. Its only after coming here that i really missed our dear Sabina Aunty and her yummy food.

Palada / Rice Crepes
Recipe Source: Sabina Aunty

2 cups Pachari Rice / Raw Rice Soaked ( i used Sona Masuri )
1 egg
1 cup Thick Coconut milk
3 cups Water ( add more if needed )
Salt to taste

  • Grind rice and egg to a very fine paste.
  • Add in coconut milk, water and salt to taste
  • The batter has to be watery ( literally ), do not ferment.
  • Heat a pan on high heat.
  • Pour in a ladle of batter and swirl the pan, as the batter is watery, it'll spread everywhere.
  • It'll just take a few min to cook, once you see the dosa cooked, fold in half( forming a semi-circle ) and again in half ( it'll  form a  triangle ) as shown in the picture.
  • Serve hot with Chicken Curry / Mutton Kurma
