Rice flour and semolina pancakes

Although I've called them pancakes, the name doesn't really do these little discs justice. The consistency of these snacks is more like that of a pizza base - they can hold sauces and veggie slices without buckling. But there's no yeast and proving time involved, you can go from flour to a full tummy in no more than 15 minutes!


1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup semolina (the finer the better)
A handful of coriander leaves, chopped finely
1 egg
Salt to taste
A pinch of ground pepper
1/2 t baking powder
1 cup of water 


Mix the first seven ingredients together. Add water, a little at a time, until you get a batter of the consistency of pancake batter.  Beat  until smooth.

Drop spoonfuls on a hot slightly greased griddle and turn when the bottom turns golden brown. Cook the other side until light brown.

Top with slices of vegetables, pasta sauce, a chutney, grated or sliced cheese or anything else that you might like.
