These are yummy and frugal. Whenever we make rice for dinner we make a HUGE pot and use the leftovers for breakfast. This recipe comes from and I am posting it for the January TOTM.


  1. Use a fork to mash the rice a little or you can blend it a little with the milk but you want some graininess to give the pancakes their special texture.
  2. After the rice has been mashed a little, then add the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Use a whisk to stir everything up.
  4. If you use yogurt the batter may be very thick, you can add a little water to the batter to thin it out for frying.
  5. Fry in a hot skillet or griddle, turn them when they are brown on the bottom. Try to keep them small. They are so tender that frying big ones is a little tricky.
  6. Serve with syrup and butter.

I had some left over rice so I decided to give this recipe a try and was not disappointed. I used brown rice, half wheat half white flour and plain yogurt. I did add about 1/4 C of water, it was still thick but delicious. Thanks for posting!

This makes a lovely light pancake, I was surprised as with the rice, I thought it might be a bit heavy. I used some passionfruit yoghurt that needed to be used as subbed SR Flour for the plain flour & baking soda, a very enjoyable brekky. Thanks for posting!
