Konkani Surnali / Rice Pancakes

Surnali
We Konkanis love dosas and idlis for breakfast.  Surnali is a thick pancake made of rice and coconut.  These pancakes are also made sweet adding jaggery, but we love the savory ones called as Cheppi Surnali.

Ingredients:
Medium Grain Rice - 1 cup
Grated Coconut - 1/4 cup
Thin Poha/Parched Rice/Beaten Rice - 1/2 cup
Fenugreek/Methi seeds - 1/4 tsp
Salt
Oil preferably Coconut Oil

How to make Konkani Surnali:
  • Soak rice and fenugreek seeds in water for about 5 hrs.  Wash rice well.
  • Grind rice, grated coconut, salt and parched rice to a fine paste.  Batter consistency is thick and not runny.  Ferment the batter overnight in a warm place.
  • Heat a pan and pour a ladle full of batter.  Spread it evenly in a circular pattern, slightly thick like a pancake or a set dosa.  Drizzle little oil.
  • Flip the dosa when the pores can be seen and colour changes.  Roast the other side and Surnali is ready to serve with chutney.
  • In case, you love the sweet Surnali, add grated jaggery while grinding.  Sweet surnalis taste great with a dollop of butter or ghee (clarified butter).
