Adai

Adai is another form of dosa filled with nutrients. It has such a wonderful flavour that everyone will love it.. This is one of my favourites since childhood. Adai is a combo of rice and lentils and needs no fermentation.. a sigh of relief...U can make adai immediately after grinding.




Ingredients:

1 cup Idli rice
1/4 cup urad dal
1/4 cup toor dal
1/4 cup channa dal
A handful whole moong (optional)
a small piece of ginger
Red chillies
1-2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 grated coconut
hing/Asafoetida
salt to taste
curry leaves

Preparation:

Soak Rice, dals and red chillies over nite. Drain about 3/4 th of the water before grinding. Grind with curry leaves, ginger and red chillies to a coarse paste. U can add dals at different stages to make more crunchier adai.Adjust salt. Add grated coconut to the batter.

Use a dosa pan, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it evenly. Add oil to the corners, wait till the crisp up. Turn sides to make sure its fully cooked. Serve hot with Avial...
