Rice and Dal Adai are an excellent combo of rice and lentils mixed together with red chillies, curry leaves and hing and pan fried in dosa shape. This is a very healthy and nutritious breakfast and generally has no stuffing inside. Rice and dal adai is a very popular south Indian breakfast served with coconut chutney. Adai is one of the most popular, nutritious lentil crepe breakfast dishes from the south Indian cuisine. This dish is easy to prepare, simple flavours yet very delicious and nutritious to eat. As this dish is made with a mix of rice and lentils it is rich in carbohydrates and proteins.

Generally known as Adai dosa, it is served with coconut chutney and made into slightly medium thick pancake. As Adai is a multi lentil crepe, it is crispy, light and a stomach filling breakfast. Adai is a very filling and satisfying dish which keeps your day going. It tastes very good all by itself but when has with avial it has a heavenly and pleasant taste. A traditional and appetizing Adai is made of four healthy lentils like the channa dal, moong dal, tur dal and urad dal, spiced with red chillies, fresh peppercorns and flavoured with ginger pieces.

This delicious crepe is quite a heavy dish and one cannot eat more than 2 or 3 crepes at one time. Usually fresh ginger and methi seeds are added that help in proper digestion. Moreover ginger also gives a warmth and spicy flavour to the adai. Adai is a little thicker than the normal basic dosa. Adai is a high protein dish and can also be eaten with milaga podi and ghee. Rice is a staple food in most Indian homes especially south India. There are a variety of rice available such as white rice, brown rice and basmati rice. 

Generally for making the idlis or dosas, white rice is used but nowadays you would find many using brown or red rice for preparing idlis etc for various health reasons. White rice is one of the easiest and quickest foods to cook, digest very fast but is low in fiber and good in carbohydrates which are required for overall energy. Brown rice has several health benefits. However, it is not very commonly used in Indian households mainly because people are ignorant of the health benefits of brown rice and secondly that it is costlier compared to white rice.

Brown rice is very rich in vitamins and minerals, thus is more nutritious and beneficial to our body. Lentils are a powerhouse of nutrition and rich source of potassium, calcium, zinc, niacin and vitamin K, but are particularly rich in dietary fiber, lean protein, folate and iron. Thus it’s very important that you include at least one variety of lentil in your everyday meal. You can make umpteen dishes with lentils. In southern India, lentils are added in sambarrasam, curries etc. They are also used for seasoning the chutney, pachadis etc. Do watch the below video and enjoy making Rice and Dal Adai.

Chef I like your south Indian recipes but the measurements are really confusing. DO you mind giving us exact measurements for all items ? One cup means universal one cup measure or your one cup looks really big
