  • Channa dal - 100 gms

  • Rice (raw) - 100 gms
  • Urad Dal - 100 gms
  • Black pepper - 1 tsp
  • Red Chillies - 5
  • Salt to taste
  • Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Raw grated Coconut - a small cup (optional)
  • How to Make Shallow Fried Adai:

    1. Soak all the dals and rice together in water for about four hours, preferably overnight.
    2. Wash thoroughly and grind to a coarse paste in a mixie, adding very little water, red chillies and black pepper.
    3. Consistency should be that of vadai. If ground finely the adais will not come out nice.
    4. Mix hing powder and turmeric powder and salt. Leave it for about half an hour. Do not allow to ferment.
    5. Heat a thava or griddle (thick one) and apply a little oil evenly.
    6. Spread the batter evenly and make a few holes with a knife (one in the centre and one each on all four directions).
    7. Add little oil into these holes and cook the adai.
    8. Turn around and cook till golden brown and crisp.
    9. Serve hot with home-made butter and jaggery or mor kuzhambu, avial, sambar or curd.
    10. Serves for eight to ten adais.
