Chili pepper flakes: For a spicy kick. Adjust the amount based on how hot you like your food.

Black pepper: To taste, for added depth and flavor.

2 tablespoons rice flour (or wheat flour): Helps to thicken the batter, giving the pancakes a nice structure. Rice flour will make them slightly lighter and gluten-free.
