Rice and Jaggery Pancakes(akki bellada Dosa)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I am starting this post with my old statement : Events inspire me to try new things and sometime I try the old or traditional recipes for participating in the events.
AND I am very happy and thanks to my brother. He gifted me the camera. My new camera is SONY,DSC-W 570.(Review about the product is soon in my blog). So I can post my new recipes with new photos.

This Rice and Jaggery Pancake is not a new dish, but I never bothered to try it. When I visited many blogs, I came through this recipe. But every time, I used to read the method, loved the clicks and then forget.
and now, when there is my event going on which is guest hosted by Priya, I thought of trying this one. But I did not wanted to go through any recipes,  I wanted to rely on my memory and my version. And hey, I have good(not very good) memory. The pancakes I tried were just delicious. I checked the other blogs after I finished making, my preparation was almost the same but I had omitted few ingredients.
Coming to my version(it might be same in some other blogs too, but that is totally without my knowledge.)

Coming to the recipe,

Ingredients :
Rice(I used regular rice) - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup or little less as per your taste
Cardamom - 1,peeled and crushed
Fresh coconut - 1/2 cup, grated or break into pieces.
Salt a pinch
Ghee to make the pancakes.(1/2 tsp for each pancake)

Soak the rice for 5 to 6 hours.
Drain and grind into coarse paste. In the last round add the grated coconut and cardamom and grind into fine paste.
Before the last round, add  the jaggery and grind one more round.
Remove and transfer the batter into a bowl.
You can start making the pan cakes immediately or even after keeping it for sometime.
Heat the dosa pan. Spread the batter into small and thick dosa.
Let it cook on low flame for half a minute. Turn it and cook on other side.
Spread 1/2 tsp of ghee on it, Remove and repeat with remaining batter.
I got 8 dosas with the qty I had taken.
Serve hot with pickle.
