Toor Dal Adai


Toor Dal is one versatile lentil that we use in every day cooking, be it sambar, or rasam or even dal fry. In this (Toor Dal Adai) recipe, I have used Toor Dal to make crispy and filling Adai. Adai is a form of dosa and there are several versions of making adais using different lentils. Toor dal Adai is one delicious recipe that I want to share with you all. This is my entry to JFI event: Toor Dal hosted by my friend Linda of 'Out of the Garden'. Thanks Linda for hosting this event. Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients:

Toor Dal - 3/4 cup

Par Boiled Rice - 1 cup

Fresh Coconut (grated) - 1/2 cup

Green Chillies - 3 to 4

Asafoetida Powder

Curry Leaves

Salt to taste


Method:

Soak Toor Dal and Par Boiled Rice in water for 3 to 4 hours.

Grind the soaked Dal and Rice together. Add Coconut, Green Chillies, Asafoetida Powder and Chopped Curry leaves and Salt while grinding. Grind to a smooth dosa batter adding very very little water.

Use this batter to make nice and crispy thin Dosa or thick Adai. Serve with yogurt or any spicy chutney.

Note: The batter can be used instantly or used after fermenting.

This is my entry to Dosa Mela hosted by Srivalli of Cooking for all seasons.

Hi Mythreyee, your adai looks extra tempting on this chilly wintry day. I'm so excited too because I just got a brand new tawa and now I can make your recipe for the first dish cooked on it!

Thank you so much for taking part in JFI Toor Dal with this lovely adai! Your new blog home is really looking great :)

I have been looking for daal addai recipes, but unfortunately my Hubby dear cannot digest toor daal, do you think I could use some other daal

Look for Moong dal Adai. As far as I know, It is digestable. Also, try the same adai recipe with different dals, like take a couple of table spoons of each dal, rice one cup and do as per the adai procedure. You will love it.
