Step by Step Instructions
Soak 2 cups of rice in a large bowl, preferably overnight.
Drain the water completely and add into a food processor or blender together with coconut milk, flakes, spices, sugar, salt and yeast.
Blend until it’s puree. You might have to do this in batches depending on your blender. Just make sure you pause in between and check for smoothness.
Pour in a large bowl, cover and let it rise in a warm area until doubled in size or when you see bubbles forming.
Heat a pancake pan or frying pan on medium heat and brush the pan with the oil.
Make sure the pan is hot enough before adding batter.
Cook the batter for about 2-3 minutes on each side, then quickly flip and continue cooking on the other side.
Repeat until all the batter is finished and you have a pile of pancakes!
Enjoy with chai or caramel dipping sauce.
