How to make Rice Pancake?
1. Peel bananas and mash in a bowl, using potato masher.
2. Add the rice flour and water gradually mixing with a wooden spoon. Blend well, add sugar and nutmeg or vanilla.
3. Add more water if necessary to make consistency of thick batter. Leave for 1/2 hour.
4. Clarify about 1/2 or 3/4 pint of oil and pour out into a cup. Heat just enough oil to cover the frying pan.
