  2. Hi Hazel,

    thanks a lot for your lovely comment..

  3. Vaidehi,

    ya recipesaathi kuthla rava vapartes? jada rava ka?

  4. Hi Hema,
    हो, या रेसिपीमध्ये जाड रवा वापरावयाचा आहे.

  5. Hello Vaidehi,
    Your recipes are great and so is your blog. Need your assistance in figuring out something.
    I tried making this recipe and it didnt come out well. The pancakes wouldn't set properly. After adding a little rice flour I thought it would help, but they were still the same. I used the exact measures as you have mentioned. Could help me figure out. Thanks a lot! and best wishes.

  6. Hi
    It might be the baking soda or the batter consistency. The above recipe requires very tiny amount of baking soda. A little extra may ruin the dish. Also, when did you add baking soda? It should be added just before making pancakes and not during the resting time.
    Note: It is better to make slightly thick batter, because after adding soda, batter tends to become little loose in constancy.

  7. Hello Vaidehi, apology to reply in late. I added the baking soda just before I started making them,when the first one didnt turn up well. I added it along with the rice flour, and the consistency was also slightly thick. Nevertheless taste wise they were delicious.. Thanks for your reply!

  8. Hi, Is it ok if I made the rava buttermilk mixture overnight refrigerated and work with rest of the steps next morning?? just to skip the 1&1/2 hour of waiting process??

    1. Hi Apeksha

      It is okay. But the batter should be come to room temperature before proceeding. If you try making pancakes using cold mixture, the pancakes wont set properly on tawa. They will break or the texture wont be good. So make sure the batter comes to room temp.
