Adai Dosa

It's been a long time since my last post... I went to India for a few weeks , had been busy with other things for the past three months, and now Iam ready to start posting . Adai dosai is a popular tiffin in Tamilnadu and I hope You all like this simple yet tasty recipe.

Ingredients

Raw rice-1/2 cup
Boiled rice or Idly rice- 1/2 cup
channa dal - 1/2 cup
toor dal- 1/4 cup
urad dal- 1/4 cup
red chillies- 4 to 5 or acc to taste
onion-1 chopped finely ( u can use sambar onions too)
curry leaves- a few chopped finely
coconut- 2 tsps grated(optional)
asafoetida- a pinch
salt - to taste
garlic-1 small clove (optional)

Method

Wash and soak the rice and dals for 2 to 3 hours.
Grind it along with salt, asafoetida, coconut ,red chillies and salt into a coarse paste by adding little water.The batter should not be thin and should be thicker than the dosa batter.Add the onions and curry leaves to the batter and mix it well.
Heat the tava, pour a ladleful of the batter and spread it thick.Drizzle some oil on the sides and flip over when it is golden brown.
Serve hot with coconut chutney or avial.

Note:

If you want the adai to be more crispy add 3/4-1 cupof channa dal and 1-2 tbsp each of toor and urad dal.
If you want the adai to be more healthy , you can add more dals like masore and moong dals too.
You can cut the coconut into teeth like pieces and add to the batter along with onions(instead of grinding).

Hi Prema
Nice post. I love Adais with home-made butter and tomato ketchup. I make it quite often.
Btw, this dish is just called 'Adai' and not Adia Dosa as I've noticed most people do!
