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. Beginners, You can refer How to Cook Lentils?/All About Lentils to know how to buy lentils.
Raw rice (Pacha arisi) – 2 1/2 cups
Bengal gram (kadalai paruppu) – 1/4 cup
Urad dal (ulutham paruppu) – 1/4 cup
Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds (seeragam) – 1 teaspoon
Pepper (milagu thool) – 1/2 teaspoon
Asafoetida (perungayam) – a pinch
Red chillies – 5 To 6 nos.
Salt – 2 teaspoons
Oil – as desired
Note. The ingredients shown will vary with the original quantity.
1. Wash and soak the rice in water for 1 and 1/2 hours. Wash and soak the dals for 1/2 hour just before you are going to grind.
3. Likewise, grind the soaked dals using very little water into a coarse batter along with the rest of the ingredients. Pour it into the same mixing bowl. Consistency of the dal batter should neither be loose or thick.
5. Heat a dosa pan. Using a ladle, take the batter and spread it on the dosa pan. Apply oil on the corners of the dosa. When one side of the adai is cooked, flip it over to cook the other side. The cooked adai will be like a Paper Roast Dosa – very crispy.
Now, Rice And Dal Adai is ready!!!
