Urad dal Adai

Hi Readers,

This is a very simple recipe to prepare. It consumes less time and is healthier as it is protein rich.

In South India, similar to Dosa another recipe is made called Adai, it is usually a combination of Pulses
 mixed with very little rice flour to make the batter. Onions, ginger, curry leaves are generally added
to the batter. I have prepared a similar dish, though I can't say this is the actual adai recipe.

I have made this with only Urad dal combined with Onion, ginger and green chilli for breakfast.

You can name it Urad dal Pan cake or Urad dal Adai.

Lets now have a look at the recipe.

Ingredients :- 
1 cup Urad dal soaked overnight.
1 onion chopped
2 green chilli chopped
1 tbsp ginger chopped
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp cumin and red chilli roasted powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil

It makes about 4 Urad dal Adai.

Method :-
Grind the soaked urad dal to fine paste. Keep it to ferment for 1 to 2 hrs. Add onion, green chilli, ginger, coriander leaves and salt. Add cumin and red chilli powder.Add water if required and adjust salt to make the batter of sameconsistency as Dosa. Heat a Tawa or griddle. Grease little oil. Pour batter and spread as in Dosa. When bubbles appear on one side, turn to other side. When both sides are cooked , remove and serve hot with chutney.
