Chilli Adai

My H like Adai more than regular Dosa. We like spicy Adai's. One fine evening i have no dosa batter in my fridge. Suddenly i came up with this idea. Just 2 to 3 hours soaking time is enough if you soak the dals and rice in hot water. This simple adai goes with idli podi very well. If you have time you can make coconut chutney as side dish too. This Adai goes very well with South Indian Aviyal. Here comes the recipe for this simple Adai...

You will need:

  • 1 cup raw rice
  • ½ cup toor dal
  • ½ cup Channa dal
  • ¼ cup urad dal
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp Asafoetida Powder (hing powder, LG)
  • 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • salt as required
  • bunch of coriander leaves
  • Chilli flakes (optional)
  • oil (To make Adai) You can use ghee also

Step 1:

Soak rice, toor dal, channa dal, urad dal together in a vessel for 3 to 4 hours.

Step 2:

Grind it in a mixie/ blender by adding little water(Not too watery..Just like regular dosa batter). Grind it to a course paste.

Now add chopped coriander leaves, chilli powder, cumin powder, asofoetida powder and ginger garlic paste along with the course paste and switch on the mixie/ blender one more time just to get the coriander leaves mixed with the dal paste.

Step 3:

Now add the salt and mix it.

Step 4:

Heat griddle/tawa/ nonstick pan pour a ladle of batter and roll it around to spread it evenly. Cook one side pour some oil around and turn other side to cook .When done remove and serve.

You can top one side of the dosa with chilli flakes or onions to get chilli Adai, Onion Adai.
