A popular South Indian snack.

Cooking Time : 20 min.
Preparation Time : 15 min.


1 teacup uncooked rice
2 tablespoons toovar dal
2 tablespoons chana dal
2 tablespoons urad dal
8 red chillies
a pinch of asafoetida
3 tablespoons grated coconut
1 carrot, grated
5 tablespoons finely chopped cabbage
2 onions, finely chopped
5 tablespoons chopped coriander
3 to 4 curry leaves, finely chopped
2 to 3 green green chillies, finely chopped
salt to taste
oil for deep frying
1. Cover the rice and dals in separate vessels with cold water and leave to soak for 2 hours.
2. Drain the dals and rice.
3. Put the rice, toovar dal, chana dal, urad dal, red chillies and asafoetida in a blender with a little water and grind to a coarse batter.
4. Add the remaining ingredients except the oil for deep frying. If the batter is very thick, add a little water.
5. Heat the tava. Spread a little batter on the tava and drop a little oil around the edge of the batter. Allow to cook for a few minutes. When brown spots appear on the edge, turn the adai and cook on the other side.
Serve hot with coconut chutney.
