Brown rice Adai

I am sorry that I have been MIA for some time. It was nothing big this time. Only that I was lazy, so lazy to phrase and publish a post. Well, I don't blame me, the weather is so depressing. Its gloomy all day and the suns sets as early as 4.00 pm and then it is dark. Finally I am out of the slumber and here I am with a heart healthy adai recipe. I have replaced the regular white rice with brown rice making this more healthy when compared to the regular ones.

~*What U Need*~
Brown Rice - 3/4 cup
Idli rice - 1/4 cup

Thoor Dal - 1/3 cup
Channa dhal - 1/4 cup
Urad dhal - 2 tbsp
Moong dhal - 1/4 cup
Dried red chilli - 1 or 2
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Fennel seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 1 fat clove
Salt - to taste

To mix:
Onion - 1 medium, finely chopped
Cilantro - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
Hing - a pinch

How I Made it:
Wash all the dals and rice well. Soak the dal and rice separately for 3-4 hours. In a blender, grind the rice first for 3-4 mins, then add the rest of the ingredients and blend it to a little coarse batter using enough water. The batter consistency should be thick like idli batter. Transfer the ground batter to the bowl, add the mix-ins. Either use it right away or allow to sit for 1-2 hrs. Heat a tawa, smear it with little oil pour a ladle full of batter. Spread like dosa but thick. Drizzle oil and cook it in medium heat for 2-3 mins. After brown, flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve adai with desired chutney or avial.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
