- Boiled Rice(Puzhungal Arisi) - 1 cup
- Channa dal - 1/3 cup
- Toor Dal - 1/3 cup
- Urid Dal - 1/3 (Black urid dal - Karuppu ulundhu will be good)
- Pepper - 1 tbsp
- Red chillies - 2
- Asafoetida - a pinch
- Curry leaves - 15 leaves
- Salt to taste.
- Sesame Oil - 2 tsp for one adai
Now heat the pan (Iron Dosa Tawa will be good for Adai) and spread the batter , into a medium round shape and make a small hole with a spoon in the middle. Now pour 1 tsp sesame oil along the edges and into the hole. After a minute or two, turn it over and pour one more tsp oil. Take it out after a minute or until it turns golden brown and crispy. It is better to cook the adai in medium heat. Better side dish would be Jaggery and Ghee. Avial will also be a good combination for adai. Try this and lemme know your comments.
Note: Can also make drumstick leaves adai, plantain flower leaf adai with this batter.
