  1. Grind the green peas in a blender to a coarse paste, using very little water.
  2. Transfer the paste to a bowl, add the rice flour, besan, turmeric powder, green chillies, salt and 1¼ cup water and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  3. Just before making the pancakes, add the fruit salt and mix gently.
  4. Heat a tava (griddle) and grease it lightly with oil.
