This month’s Magic Mingle combo gave me a jitters .Rice and Watermelon!..well rather tough combo, but I was flooded with ideas very soon…but implementing them and then liking the taste was another issue.Anyway I finally decided on making rice crepes..these would pass for sure..and if the sauce did not pass…I would serve with chocolate sauce!So I moved on with the combo.
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup milk
1 ¼ cups rice flour
¼ cup sugar
Blend all ingredients in a blender and make batter.
On a non stick gridle, pour a ladle full.
Drizzle some oil.
Flip over and cook the other side till golden.
Water melon sauce
250 ml water melon juice
2-3 tbsp corn flour
¼ cup sugar or more depending on how sweet the water melon is.
Boil the water melon juice .
Add sugar, let it dissolve.
Dissolve the cornflour in a little water.
Slowly, add it to the juice ,till a little thick.
Drizzle chocolate sauce on the serving plate.
Place the crepes.
Pour the sauce and some nuts.
Serve with whipped cream.
The crepes turned out amazing, very soft and melt in the mouth kinds..the watermelon sauce needed a little flavoring..I guess I should have added some vanilla flavor to it!..but as a platter with chocolate sauce drizzled and whipped cream…and the roasted almonds……..it was like a gourmet dessert!
