If you don’t like Godhumai Adai, think again????
 

I had this recipe in my collection of recipes. I am not a big fan of wheat. If I make anything using wheat flour like godhumai dosa, godhumai adai etc. the side dish has to be really tasty. If not, it would be a big NO NO from me. Though I don’t like wheat dosa, I make it a point to make at least once in two weeks for my hubby. My hubby loves healthy food. I was very hesitant to try out this adai but then made up my mind and made it two days back. I should say I just loved it. Though it is quite heavy because of the veggies, I like it very much. I usually have it with Coconut chutney,Thogayal, Sambar, Tomato Mint Chutney and Til chutney.

Notes.

  • Do not grind the batter finely.
  • Once you spread the batter into round shape, you can add chopped onions on top of it and then carefully flip it over when one side of the adai is cooked. You can also fry the onions separately and add it to the adai when one of its side is getting cooked. Fried onions gives a good flavor compared to the raw onions.

Fast and easy to make!

When I do not find time to make dosa and Idly batter, I make this adai and have it along with sambar and chutney. I will have two adai, and my stomach becomes full. Usually, people say do not eat adai for dinner as it takes time to digest. Then, why not have it in the morning? Have two to three adai and you are all set for next 3-4 hours.

Vazhaipoo Adai

I do not get Banana Blossom (Vazhaipoo) often in my place. We would have to travel 2 hours to get a good vazhaipoo so whenever I get a chance, I would buy 2 or 3 and make lot of dishes using vazhaipoo. My mom-in-law makes vazhaipoo vadai often and my mom makes vazhaipoo kootuoften. You know what I make often? I make this Vazhaipoo Adai often. Will post Vazhaipoo Vadai recipe soon. It also tastes very yummy just like this tasty Adai. First time when I heard about Vazhaipoo Adai, I wanted to try it out right away. Since then I started liking it so much but removing and cutting vazhaipoo only is a cumbersome process. I usually do it during Friday night while watching movies with friends. Then I put it in buttermilk and cook on the next day. I like doing the cleaning part but need to allocate some time to do it slowly at my own pace. So how many of you have tried Vazhaipoo Adai so far?

Raw rice (Pacharisi) – 2 cups

Channa dal (Kadalai paruppu) – 1/2 cup

Yellow moong dal (Payatham paruppu) – 1/2 cup

Urad dal (Ulutham paruppu) – 1/2 cup

To grind along with the batter

Red chillies (Kanja molaga) – 4 to 6 nos.

Asafoetida (Perungayam) – 1/2 teaspoon

Ginger (Enji) – a small piece

Finely chopped banana blossom florets (Vazhaipoo) – 2.5 cups (If you are going to use the vazhaipoo later, soak the florets in buttermilk or else the florets will become dark).

Salt – as desired

For seasoning

Mustard seeds (Kadugu) – 1/2 teaspoon

Curry leaves (Karuvepillai) – 10 nos.

Coriander leaves (Kothamalli) – 4 to 5 sprigs

Chopped onion – 3 to 4 nos.

Chopped green chillies (Pacha molaga) – 4 nos.

Grated coconut – 6 tablespoons

Oil – 2 teaspoons

Note. The ingredients shown will vary with the original quantity.

Preparation

1. Soak all the dals and rice together for 2 to 3 hours. If you want, you can soak and grind each of them separately and then add everything together. To the soaked dal and rice, add red chillies, asafetida, ginger, and salt. Add very little water and grind well to a thick batter (little thicker than the idly batter consistency).

2.  In a pan, heat 2 teaspoons of oil. Add mustard seeds and let it splutter. Then add curry leaves.

Notes.

Refrigerate idlis for at least 1/2 hour just before cooking as it will prevent idlis from crumbling.
Serve hot as it would become soggy as time passes by.
Be careful while adding soya sauce as it may change the taste of the dish and also make it salty.
Once you add fried idlis, toss it gently or else idlis will break.
