BLACK URAD DAL / BLACK GRAM ADAI VER II


BLACK URAD DAL / BLACK GRAM ADAI VER II


Black Gram/ Urad dal adais is one of our family  favorite. 
 Not only it tastes so good, it is very healthy as well. We do few versions of Black gram adai with little variations in proportions, each one of them tastes very good.  I had posted one in my blog earlier Here is  BLACK GRAM ADAI - VER I , this is the second variation, will try to post another version when I am making. 
You can make thin and crispy or thick and crispy depends on your liking...either way it tastes soooo good with lots of peppercorns, cumin and curry leaves. We had it with Onion pickle( tastes tangy, sweet, spicy all in one) and podi. It also tastes delicious with onion chutney and coconut chutney.








BLACK URAD DAL / BLACK GRAM ADAI
 
Ingredients:

Idli Rice - 3/4 cup
Raw Rice - 1/4 cup
Split urad dal with skin (Black gram) - 3/4 cup
Red chilies - 2
Black pepper - 1 tsp (You can also add 1/4 tsp extra if you like peppery taste)
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves few
Asafoetida - 1/8 tsp
Salt as needed
Ghee or Oil to drizzle

Ghee taste excellent for this adais.  






METHOD:

1. Wash Rice and soak in water for at least 2 to 3 hrs. (Do not soak Urad dal, it has to be washed and ground with rice when you are ready to grind the batter)
2. Wash the Black gram and keep it aside.  Now grind the rice with other spices to coarse rava like texture.  Then add washed Black gram and grind coarsely.
3. Batter can be used immediately for making adai / cheela.  But I would suggest and prefer to grind them 2 to 3 hrs before.
4. Adjust the batter by adding little water to pouring (Still it has to be thick not so thin) consistency.   In a hot skillet pour one ladle full of batter and spread like a pancake or thick crepes.
5. Drizzle tsp of oil/ghee once bottom is done flip to other side. Roast till they are crisp on both the sides.
6. Serve with tsp of ghee or butter on top.  Serve with spicy onion chutney, garlic chutney, Tomato chutney or coconut chutney.










Note:

1. If you are ok in consuming more ghee use it liberally for drizzling and make Crispy adais. It tastes just out of the world.
