  • Sugar 1 tablespoon

  • Chocolate chips 2 tbsp + for garnishing


Step 1

Boil 1¼ cup water in a non-stick pan. Add 1¼ cups rice flour and mix well. Cook for 5-6 minutes, sprinkling a little water from time to time and mixing well till it forms a dough. Wrap dough in a damp cloth and keep aside.
