What are the variations in Adai ?

We love Adai at home, so many varieties are made regularly rotating the grains / substituting rice with Quinoa, brown rice and even millets.

Tips to make a delicious adai:

  1. Soak rice + lentils for only the time indicated in the recipe
  2. Grind the batter slightly coarse to give it a characteristic texture to the adai (some people like to grind it smooth) 
  3. If using brown rice / other varieties, the soak time might increase by an hour.
  4. Most adai are made immediately after grinding, but we prefer to ferment it for at least an hour to help the lentils digest better
  5. Adai is spicy on its own with red chillies / green chillies / ginger added to it while soaking / grinding, so an adai is simply served with some molgapudi (gun powder) and jaggery. (Some prefer butter) . It tastes great on its own too without any accompaniments
  6. Adai remains soft even after making them, so perfect for lunch boxes. 
  7. Temperature of the tava / skillet is important as lentil batter burns quickly. Make them on moderate heat
  8. If not gluten friendly, use asafoetida to prevent flatulence from the lentil batter.
