Ponpolay - Near Dosa recipe, eat well on universal credit

We had these as a side with the Pork Indad a couple of days ago. I’m a little behind with recipes, sorry.


140g of Rice
275ml of Water, plus 70ml for blending
2 Tbsp of Boiled Rice
Oil to fry
Salt to taste


(1) Soak the Rice for at least 2 hours.
(2) Rinse and drain.
(3) Grind the soaked Rice and pre-cooked Rice with 70ml of Water to form a paste.
(4) Add 275ml of Water to the Paste and whisk to make a thin batter.
(5) Season with a pinch of Salt.
(6) Heat a non-stick griddle or cast Iron pan and lightly Oil.
(7) Pour batter to one side of the pan and lift & tilt to spread the batter across the surface.
(8)  Cook for a minute or so until the sides leave the edge of the pan.
(9) Remove and allow to cool before folding into quarters.

These made a really good Gluten free Rice based alternative to Chapatis.
