Lentils Dosa (Adai)  

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Adai is a very favoured breakfast dish in Tamil Nadu. Its prepared with various daals and known for health. I hadn't prepared it for a long time because I didn't have my mom's recipe. I got it from her after starting my blog and here it goes.


Channa daal - 1/4 cup
Urad daal - 1/4 cup
Thor daal - 1/2 cup
Normal rice - 1/2 cup
Idli rice - 1/2 cup
Green chillies or red chillies - 2
Grated coconut - 1/3 cup
Onion (medium) - 1
Tomato - 1
Ginger - 1 inch
Asafoetida - a pinch


1. Soak all the lentils and rices together for 2 hours.

2. Blend all the ingredients along with the soaked rice and lentils using very little water.

3. Make the batter consistent enough to make dosa.

4. After two hours, heat the tawa and pour 1/4 cup of batter on it and spread it around. Add 1 tsp of oil around the dosa. Flip over and fry.

5. Adai can be served with Coconut chutney, Tomato chutney or dosa powder (podi).
