How to Make Rajma Adai

  • Soak the rajma for a full 24 hours, in a bowl. Soak the rice for 2 hours (in a separate bowl). Wash the rice and the rajma well.
  • First grind the rajma coarsely and keep aside.
  • Now, grind the rice with the chillies and then mix it with the rajma paste.
  • Add salt and curry leaves.
  • Mix well and keep it overnight.
  • Just before making the adais, mix asafoetida and onions (if required) and water.
  • Give the mixture a good stir.
  • Heat a tava and spread a little oil on it.
  • Now, pour about a ladle full of the rajma mix and spread it (like you would for a dosa/pancake).
  • Pour one-tsp oil along the circumference and wait till done.
  • Then flip it over and pour another tsp oil.
  • Wait till done on this side also. (Best, if lightly crisp). Serve hot with butter or jaggery.
