Adai - Healthy mixture of Grains

If there is a healthy breakfast that includes major whole grains is ADAI. This is done by grinding together a mixture of Bengal gram dal , Urad Dal , Toor Dal , White Channa , Dry green peas. It makes a wholesome breakfast and traditionally this is served with Avial. You can also have it with Jaggery or Coconut chutney.
Bengal Gram Dal - 1 cup
Toor Dal - 1 cup
Urad dal - 1 cup
Channa dal - 1 cup
Dry green Peas - 1 cup
Rice - 1/4 cup
Red Chillie Powder - 2 teaspoons
Salt to taste.
Onion - 1 cut into small pieces

Soak all the grains together for about 2 hours. Grind them to form a coarse paste. In a wok heat oil and saute onions till they are translucent. Add this to the batter along with red chillie powder and salt. You can add curry leaves cut into small pieces if you want. Now pour a laddle of this batter on the tawa and cook like you would cook a dosa. If you want the Adai to be crispy be a little more liberal with oil. Your family s protein in take will be taken care by this Adai.

This Adai ,adds flavour to two events ..

Thank you for sending this Adai in to WBB.
I made mistake in typing my email id in the announcement and so didn't get your e-mail. That's why I took so long to get here.
