Ponganalu (South Indian breakfast pancakes

Remember the appam pan I bought in Wembley, well here are the Ponganalu;
I have adapted this from the web
Ingredients
1 cup rice
1/2 cup mung dal
4 spring onions
2/3 chillies
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1/2 inch ginger grated
1 table spoon of finely chopped coriander
1 table spoon of fenugrek (methi)
½ teaspoon of turmeric and salt taste
1/4 teaspoon Sodium Bicarbonate


Soak the mung beans and rice overnight. Grind, the batter should be quite thin (like pancake batter) and add everything except the Sodium bicarbonate mix thoroughly and leave for 4-5 hours.

Add the sodium bicarbonate mix.
Heat the appam pan, spray so oil when hot,
add 1 spoonful of batter/veg mix to each well, cover and cook for about 5 minutes, turn over and cook for a few minutes.


We served it with Chachi's green coconut chutney (recipe to follow).
