Adai is the south Indian version of cheela and is full of proteins and health! A mixture of lentils and rice ensure this is one super balanced and healthy dish to have!
- 1/2 cup moong dal of green
- 1/2 cup masoor dal
- 1/2 cup urad dal spilt black (with chilka)
- 1/2 cup channa dal
- 1/2 cup toor dal
- 1/2 cup rice
Apart from this you will need
- 3 green chillies more depending on how spicy you want your adai to be
- 2 dry red chillies
- 5 curry leaves approximately
- to taste salt
Wash and soak all the dals in sufficient water overnight, then next morning wash the dals again to drain all the grime.
Add rest of the ingredients, apart from oil and grind to a coarse mixture, don;t over grind it, This is just my humble opinion that it tastes much better if the batter is not over ground.
Heat a non-stick pan, take a ladle full of batter and spread it circularly to make a dosa. Spread 1 tsp of oil all around the adai. Cook it till browned flip and cook the other side.
Serve hot with any chutney u prefer, we had ours with a thin tomato chutney and mint-coriander chutney.
Yummy and healthy isnt it?
