Khatta Puda (Savory Rice Flour Pancakes)

To all those who are keen on trying different types of Indian snacks will enjoy this. This is a sour dosa and very easy to make. For variation, I sometimes add sesame seeds as well. The sesame seeds make the dosa more crunchier. This can be made really quickly, so do try making it when you are in a hurry. Watch the video for this super easy recipe. This recipe is gluten-free and can be customized to your liking easily. The batter can be prepared in large quantity ahead of time, and stored in the refrigerator once the batter is well fermented. Remove it form the refrigerator just 30 minutes before preparing the pudas. My younger son Aakash is a huge Puda lover, so he wants puda again next day and I noticed that the older the batter, the better the pudas come out. Cilantro, green onions, sesame seeds and powdered cumin can be added to the batter if desired for added flavor. I prepare couple of fermented recipes every week. By eating fermented food, you make your gut healthy, which is required for losing weight. Fermented foods are loaded with vitamins and minerals. They are enriched with B vitamins, B12, omega-3 fatty acids.
