Iv been wanting to make adai for such a long time!! Each time I would feel like making it I would run out of atleast one of the ingredients and then I would forget all about making it. Then I finally wrote down the recipe and got all the ingredients to make this adai!!!!.............FINALLY!! was worth the wait :) It was so crispy, and tasty. Left you with a satisfaction of eating a healthy meal.
                     I got this recipe from Aromatic cooking. Just skipped the coconut part. Thanks Hema.....:)

1 cup Parboiled rice   
1/2 cup toor dal
1/2 cup channa dal
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup corriander leaves, finely chopped
15 curry leaves
2 dry red chillies
3 green chillies, chopped
1 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 tsp asafoetida powder/ hing

  • Soak the rice and the dals separately for atleast 2- 3 hours.
  • Grind the rice with the red chillies. keep aside
  • Reserving a handful of the dal, grind the dal along with the fennel seeds .
  • Mix both together, along with the reserved dal and the rest of the ingredients.
  • the batter will be slightly thick and when a spoon of battler placed on the tawa, it will not spread.
  • Heat a tawa and put 2 spoons of batter on it and spread the batter using the back of the spoon.
  • pour 2 tsp oil around it.
