Remarks

This recipe is intended as a main course with two pannequets per guest, but you can turn it into a starter by makeing smaller pannequets (half size).

If you don't have chicken stock to cook the rice, use water instead but it's less tasty. Same goes for the seeds: if you don't have flax seeds use sesame, poppy or anything else you like.
