In This Recipe
Soak the mung in warm water for 30 min until it rehydrates & plumps up
Using a blender, grind the mung beans along with the rice flour, lemon juice, jalapeno, salt & cayenne pepper until it becomes a smooth paste.
transfer to a bowl, wash the blender jar with seltzer and add the liquid to the batter along with the baking powder, enough to get an adequate thickness for pancake batter.
Using the sides of a chefs knife, smash the corn kernels well and add to the batter along with the cilantro & onion. Mix well to combine.
Heat a non stick skillet and sprinkle about 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds. when they begin to pop, ladle the batter evenly over the seeds. cook till golden brown (~ 2 minutes) on the underside. drizzle with oil & turn the pancake over to cook on the other side (~ 2 minutes)
