Adai Dosa

Adai dosa is one of the most popular and healthy, protein rich South Indian breakfast recipe. Adai contains mix dals but this is different from 'Mix dal dosa'. In adai, mix dals use with rice. It comes out soft as well as crispy.

  • Thick rice or idly rice - 1½ cup

  • Split pigeon gram (toovar dal)- ¼ cup
  • Split black gram (urad dal)- ¼ cup
  • Split green gram (moong dal)- ¼ cup
  • Split red lentil (masur dal)*- ¼ cup (optional)
  • Fenugrrek seeds (methi dana)*- ½ tsp (optional) 
  • Onion or shallots, chopped- 1 cup
  • Coriander leaves, finely chopped- a handful
  • Curry leaves, finely chopped- 2 tbsp or 2 sprigs
  • Green chilli, finely chopped*- 2 tbsp (optional)
  • Ginger, grated- 2 tbsp
  • Fresh coconut, scrapped- 2 tbsp
  • Asafetida (hing)- ¼ tsp
  • Turmeric powder*- ¼ tsp (optional)
  • Red chilies (Byadagi chilies)- 10 or Red chili powder- 2 to 3 tsp 
  • Soda bi carb/baking soda- a pinch (optional)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil for frying- as required

  • Wash and soak rice and all dal separately for minimum 5 hours or over night. Soak methi dana in dals.
  • Grind red chillies with rice. Keep in a big bowl.
  • Grind all dals coarsely with minimum required water.
  • Mix ground rice and dals well and set aside for 2 to 5 hours. (or make immediately too.) But standing time yields better result.
  • Just before making adai, add chopped onion, coriander, curry leaves, chili, ginger and scrapped coconut. 
  • Also add turmeric powder, hing, salt and baking soda. Mix well by stirring. The batter should be thicker than idly dosa batter. So adjust water as needed. 
  • Heat the tawa and spread little oil and spread one ladle full of batter. Make thick dosa than regular dosa. 
  • Pour little oil around and drizzle over the adai. 
  • Turn heat to medium. Close it with a lid and cook for a minute. Then flip the dosa and cook for a minute again.
  • Serve hot with tomato chutney or coconut chutney or any type of chutney.  

  • This is not original recipe. I have added some additional ingredients to give my touch. Ingredients which I marked with *, these are extra ingredients. You may omit them. 
  • If you are making dosa immediately after grinding then only use baking soda.
  • Grind rice and dal separately. Grind dal coarsely. 
  • You can make thin dosa from this batter. Make thin batter by adding some water.
  • In case mistakenly batter became thin, add fine semolina (rava/suji). Rest the batter for min 1 hr after that.
  • To make wholesome meal add some vegetables in a batter like carrot, cabbage, spring onion, capsicum, spinach, drumstick leaves or dill leaves.
