Adai- Mixed dal dosa

I love adais from the very beginning and my mom used to make it for dinner.It used to taste delicious with butter and jaggery. Though I never learned to make them. After getting married I learnt that it was my hubby’s favourite too. So I browsed for the recipe in the net and made for him. It definitely tasted good , but yet was not upto the mark and he said that his cousin made the best adais. So I asked her the next time we met and took some tips from her. Now ,this is a regular thing at my place and of course now he says that mine is the best.hehe:)) Though adais has usually three dals in it, I add all the dals for a different taste and also good on the healthier side.


After coming to singapore, I came to know that aviyal is a good combination with adais. Adai – Aviyal is a very popular in the Indian restaurants here. And yes indeed, the combo is really good.

  1. hi, nice looking adai. i love them too. my version is slightly different, i leave my batter a little coarse and add less of rice.

  2. I pretty much make it like yours… and I love it with jaggery, even though I get weird looks from some people… but I just love them sweet.

  3. That adai looks so perfect, Sowmya. I’ve never before seen a recipe with masoor and mung dal: I can imagine how they must add yet another layer of complexity. Thanks!

  4. oh your adai loooks very sweet.. i will try this one next week :-)does it make any difference if u grind dhals and rice separately? why can’t we grind everything together?
