Adai Recipe


  • Rice 1 cup
  • Urad Daal 1/3 cup
  • Chana Daal 1/3 cup
  • Yellow Split Peas 1/3 cup
  • Salt 1 TeaSpoon
  • Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp.
  • Onion (opt.) 1 (large)
  • Carrot (opt.) 1
  • Coconut - grated (opt.) 1/4 cup

Preparation Method

  1. Mix Rice, Chana Daal, Urad Daal, and Yellow Split Peas in a large vessel. Soak in a lot of water for about 2 hours.
  2. Grind the soaked mixture with Chilli Power and salt coarsely, without adding much water.
  3. Ferment for about 3-4 hours, then refrigerate or freeze. In cold weather, the fermenting process might take longer, and it might be a good idea to ferment in an oven(the pilot light will keep the mixture warm).
  4. Add either onions (finely cut), carrot (grated) or coconut before preparing.
