Recipe: Jianbing Batter



Recipe Preparation

  1. Wash the lentils under cold water.
  2. Soak the lentils in the water for 6 hours at room temperature.
  3. Drain the lentils and rinse to remove starchy residue.
  4. Pulse purée the lentils in a vitamix blender or equivalent.
  5. Create a smooth, thick batter by streaming in cold water (about 10 oz.) with the blender on high.
  6. Whisk together the lentil purée and sifted rice flour in a large stainless steel bowl.
  7. Add the remaining water (14 oz.) and whisk until smooth.
  8. Ferment the mixture in a non-reactive storage container about twice the volume of the batter. Cover with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature overnight. NOTE: The batter isn’t ready until there are noticeable air bubbles throughout the batter. This could take two days (or warmer air temperature).
  9. Refrigerate the fermented batter until needed for service.
