Adai
Author : Vahchef
Main Ingredient : Urad dal
Servings : 4 persons
Published date : November 17, 2016


Ingredients used in Adai
• Onions (chopped) - 3 numbers.
• Coconut (grated) - as required.
• Curry leaves - 3 springs.
• Turmeric powder - pinch.
• Salt - to taste.
• Toor dal - 1/4 cup.
• Channa daal - 1 cup.
• Red chilies - 10 numbers.
• Rice - 1 cup.
• Butter - to taste.
• Oil - to fry.
• Urad dal - 1/4 cup.
Method:
  • Soak rice for 4 to 5 hours. Similarly, soak all the dals together for 2 hours.
  • Grind rice, dals, red chilies together in a bowl. The batter should be coarse (dals should be half ground).
  • Mix grated coconut, onion, curry leaves, salt and turmeric powder to the dough.
  • Heat tawa with alittle oil, pour 1 ladleful of batter and spread evenly. Make a hole in the center and another 5 holes a little distance from the center.
  • Pour Oil in each hole and on the adai to make it crispy.
  • Wait till it is golden reddish brown in color and turn it.
  • Again pour oil in each hole and little on top of adai also.
  • Serve with little butter on top while Adai is hot.

Note: The dough should not be watery. It should be thicker than a normal DOSA dough.

The adai's crispness depends on the length of the time on the tawa and can be made according to taste.
