  • How to Make Rajma Adai:

    3. Now, grind the rice with the chillies and then mix it with the rajma paste.
    4. Add salt and curry leaves.
    5. Mix well and keep it overnight.
    6. Just before making the adais, mix asafoetida and onions (if required) and water.
    7. Give the mixture a good stir.
    8. Heat a tava and spread a little oil on it.
    9. Now, pour about a ladle full of the rajma mix and spread it (like you would for a dosa/pancake).
    10. Pour one-tsp oil along the circumference and wait till done.
    11. Then flip it over and pour another tsp oil.
    12. Wait till done on this side also. (Best, if lightly crisp). Serve hot with butter or jaggery.
