Adai Dosa recipe

Adai Dosa

Adai is a protein-rich dosa which does not need fermentation and only takes preparation time to make. It consists more of dals/lentils than rice. You may add any lentils available at home and may vary the proportion of it. Add as many lentils available at home.

For 1 cup of rice, add 1 cup of all the available lentils. This makes the dosa protein rich and nutritious

  • ¼ cup urad dal
  • ¼ cup moong dal
  • 6-8 dry red chilli
  • Salt to taste
  • 1-inch ginger
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 sprig of curry leaves - chopped
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2-3 sprigs of coriander leaves finely chopped
  • 2-3 green chilli - finely chopped (optional)
  • 4 tbsp of oil for cooking Adair

step by step method

Step 1 Prepare the dosa batter

Add rice and all the other lentils (chana, urad, moong & toor dal) to the mixing bowl. Wash it thoroughly with water until it's clear. Add dry red chilli to it and let it soak for a minimum of 4-5 hours or overnight. Drain the excess water and grind it along with ginger and salt. Grind it for a minute then add water a little at a time and grind it again into a coarse batter. Take out the batter, and add the chopped onion, curry leaves, fresh coriander, green chilli and cumin seeds. Mix everything with little water to get a pouring consistency. Thick consistency will give you a thick dosa and a thin one will give you thin dosa. Adjust accordingly.

Step 2 Preparing the dosa

Next, heat a pan/ griddle on medium-high heat. When it is hot, pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a round, thin dosa. Drizzle a tsp of oil & cook it on both sides. This adai will take more time to cook than normal dosa. For easy spread, add finely chopped onion in little quantity.

Step 3 Serve Hot

Serve it with chutney or podi of your choice.
