Pro tips for rice and cucumber pancakes. 1. In a bowl put 1/2 cup rice flour (chawal ka atta). Rice flour is naturally gluten-free, making it a suitable option for people with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease. Rice flour contributes to a lighter and crispier texture in the pancakes compared to using wheat flour. This complements the refreshing coolness of the cucumber and creates a pleasant contrast in every bite. 2. Add 1/4 cup grated cucumber. cucumber is mostly water, adding moisture to the batter. This helps create pancakes that are soft and tender on the inside, rather than dry and crumbly. Cucumber has a mild, refreshing flavor that complements the savory taste of the rice flour and other spices used in the recipe.
