Recipes - Portha Polle (Pancakes)


(For pancakes):

2 cups boiled rice

2 cups raw rice

Salt to taste


For filling:

1 fresh coconut grated

250 gms. jaggery

Little cardamom powder

Cashew nuts & raisons (optional)



Soak both the rice for 3 hours then grind to a fine paste.  Add salt and keep the batter to a running consistency.  Heat a non-stick pan and apply little oil with a cut onion.  Pour a big spoonful batter to the pan and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads evenly all around.  Cover and cook for approx. 1 minute or till the pancake is done.  Remove and keep warm.  Finish with the remaining batter.


Meanwhile grate the coconut and pound the jaggery and mix both.  Add cardamom powder.  You may add fried cashew nuts and raisins to the jaggery mixture. Take out each pancake and put a spoonful of the jaggery mixture in the center lengthwise and fold carefully like a spring roll.  Serve warm.

Note:  The pancakes can also be eaten either plain or with coconut chutney without the jaggery filling.
