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.
- 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.
