Nombu adai- The savoury version

You must have already gone through my previous post where I had posted the sweet version - that is the adais made with jaggery or vella adai. Today I will be posting the savoury version which is called as uppu adai(uppu is for salt in tamil) or kara adai(which means savoury adais. Click here for complete details about nombu.

savoury nombu adaiIngredients-
Rice flour- 2cups
Black eyed beans/chawli- 1/4cup
Mustard seeds-1tsp
udid dal-1tsp
Green chillies- 2 chopped fine
Curry leaves- few leaves chopped
Coriander- a small stem chopped fine(optional)
Salt-to taste- Around 2tsp
Sesame oil- 1tsp

Soak the beans in hot water for 2 hours. Roast the rice flour for around 5 minutes. Keep it aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, udid dal, curry leaves and green chillies.Mix well. Next add the beans along with coriander if adding along with salt. Now add around 2 to 3 cups of water. Bring it to a boil. Then add the rice flour and stir to mix well into a thick mass. Now allow it to cool reasonably( till you are able to bear the heat). Make a small ball with the dough. Flatten it on a plastic sheet or banana leaf. Repeat this process with rest of the dough. Steam the savoury rice flour discs for around 10 minutes.
Serve with butter or thalagam.
