Adai dosa is a highly nutritious dosa made using a mix of lentils and rice. The dosa is healthy and very delicious to eat with chutney.
Amma makes a huge batch of dosa batter each weekend which will last us for that whole week. For grinding this, she uses a old fashioned big wet grinder which we are having for more than 25 years. While she plan to grind dosa batter, she also make appam batter and ada batter in the same day to prevent less washing of dishes.
Sometimes she makes vada batter too. This is one of her special ada recipe. If you are people who are not aware of this delicious Indian crepes..It is just a combo of rice and lentil crepes which is spiced up a little. I highly recommend you guys to try this...You can grind this in regular blender too.
About this Recipe
Dal are dried, split pulses that do not need to be soaked before cooking in Indian cuisine. Certain regions in Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and India are the world's largest producers of pulses. The term is also applied to a variety of soups made from these pulses. Tur / Arhar Dal, also known as pigeon peas, is used in the preparation of the
most common dishes in households on a daily basis. This legume is high in protein and high in nutrients. For a flavour that differs from green or dried peas, sprout these pigeon peas briefly before cooking. Dosas are a South Indian staple that consists of crepes made from fermented rice and lentils that are served with sides such as sambar and various types of chutney.
