This turned out way better than expected, light and with an almost eggy texture, so before I forget.
what to do with leftover rice.
2 cups leftover cooked rice
4 tbsp leftover plain yogurt or homemade tzatziki
3 tbsp chickpea flour
pinch ground coriander
pinch ground ginger
pinch ground turmeric
pinch cumin seeds
possibly 1 or 2 tbsp water, probably depends on your rice
a good bit of salt
coconut oil for frying
pinch nigella seeds and/or black sesame seeds
So, I just put the rice in the food processor and zhoomed it up, possibly having first added the tzatziki to make it easier to process. Then added everything but the black sesame seeds and processed it for 30 seconds or so. Then decided it needed some water but not too much, you're going for a pancake batter that will spread out a little when it hits a hot pan but will also flip without falling apart. After you throw some batter in the pan, throw a pinch of black sesame seeds on the side facing up. When the little air bubble holes appear after 2 or 3 minutes, flip and hope for the best.
