Total Time: 16 hours and 10 mins.
Servings: 2 People

• Vegetable oil
• ½ teaspoons of salt
• Three tablespoons of sugar
• Two tablespoons of baking powder
• Two cups of rice – preferably Tuwo rice
• Two tablespoons of active dry yeast
• One small onion
• Small ginger – ½ inches
• ½ cup of water for blending
• Two tablespoons of yoghurt
• ¼ cup of cooked precooked rice
• ¼ cup of water for proofing the yeast

1. You should rinse the rice several times until the water is clear. After then, let it sit in water for at least the night. This will make the rice easier to handle and suitable for blending.
2. Blend the dry active yeast, sugar, and warm water in a small bowl. Leave the mixture alone for about 10 minutes, or until it begins to foam.
3. After it has soaked, drain the rice and put it in a blender. Put in a half cup of hot water, the cooked rice, the yogurt, the onion, the ginger, and the water. Process until a uniform batter forms.
4. Add the foamy yeast mixture, baking powder, sugar, and salt to the rice mixture that has been mixed. Blend the ingredients together by stirring vigorously. Put the bowl in a warm spot and cover it with a clean towel or plastic wrap; the batter has to ferment for at least two hours. If you want more of a sour taste, you can let it ferment for another seven hours.
5. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients for baking (baking powder, sugar, and salt) and then add them to the fermented batter, mixing thoroughly.
6. Pre-heat the masa pan over medium heat and add about a quarter teaspoon of oil to each hole. In the absence of a masa pan, a nonstick frying pan will do.
7. After giving the batter one more stir, spoon it into the hot pan and fill each well approximately two-thirds of the way. Masa should be fried for about four to six minutes per side. Reuse the same pan and repeat the process with the remaining batter.
8. Sprinkle some powdered sugar or honey on top and serve hot.
