How to Make Cabbage Adai

  • Fry the urad dhal, coriander seeds and cumin seeds without oil. Soak the rice in this fried mixture for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Grind with salt, dry chilli and coconut into a slightly coarse paste.
  • Add the asafoetida and the shredded cabbage.
  • Add coriander leaves and the mixture should be of pouring consistency.
  • Heat the tawa and pour one medium sized ladle full of adai flour, spread evenly.
  • Make a hole in the centre and pour little oil in the centre and around.
  • Close with a lid and cook well.
  • Turn the side and cook without closing - this helps in making the adai crisp and well done. Serve hot with any chutney or sambar.
