  • 1 cup- long grain brown Rice (or white Rice)
  • 1/2 cup- tur dal
  • 1/2 cup- Urad Dal
  • 1/2 cup- Channa dal
  • 8 Green chillies (small Thai chillies or according to taste)
  • 12 Red Chillies ( or according to taste)
  • Ginger root -about 2 inches piece
  • 1 stalk Curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp -hing
  • Salt to taste
  • Sesame oil -a little
  • How to Make Brown Rice Adai:

    1. Soak the rice and the dals for a minimum of 2 hours. Grind in batches with the curry leaves, green chilies, red chilies and ginger. For this particular dish, it does not need to be ground very fine; the lentils and rice should look a little like medium rava (cream of wheat).
    2. Pour water while grinding.
    3. The batter should be about dropping consistency.
    4. Heat a tawa (griddle). Pour small amount of batter and spread, spread thin if you like thin and crispy style pancake or a little thicker if you like softer ones.
    5. Pour about 1/4 tsp of sesame oil on the side facing up. Let the bottom brown slightly, then turn and cook the other side.
    6. Serve hot with honey.
