Paalaada (Fluffy Rice Crepes)

Last weekend, we had made a quick stop over at J’s cousin’s place while returning home from a wedding. We were served Paalaada, which I was tasting for the first time, even though I had heard about it. We took an instant liking for those fluffy crepes. Needless to say, I had already made up my mind on trying this. Thankfully I found the recipe in my diary and was even more excited to know it is not much time consuming. Paalada is pretty much similar to Neer Dosa, a Karnataka special. Paalada is more popular in the Muslim houses. This goes best with any spicy non vegetarian gravy, but you could have it with any gravy of your choice.
