This innovative rice flour pancake with lovely specks of cucumber and spinach is sure to become one of your favourite breakfast options, thanks to its sheer simplicity and ease of preparation.

Remember to squeeze the water out of the cucumber completely, to make sure that your pancakes do not get soggy.

These Cucumber Pancakes taste delightful with green chutney, and since they are so easy to prepare you need not restrict the option to breakfast – you can prepare it anytime you see a hungry face entering home from work or play!
