How to Make Protein -Rich Adai

  • Soak the dal and rice separately in water for at least 2 hours (or overnight).
  • Wet grind coarsely with red chillies, ginger, green chillies and hing to form a thick batter.
  • Add salt to the batter (as per taste).
  • Tear the curry leaves to bits and mix into the batter.
  • In a flat iron tava, put a few drops of oil and let the tava heat up.
  • Spread the oil evenly over the tava.
  • Take a tbsp of the adai batter and spread it out on the tava like a dosa - only you have to spread it thicker than a dosa.
  • Take a spoon of oil and pour it around the edges.
  • Roast on low fire and turn the adai onto the other side when golden brown.
  • Serve with ketchup, jaggery or white butter.
