- Take all the ingredients listed under ‘to soak’ in a mixing bowl, soak it in water till immersing level.Soak for atleast 4 hrs.
- Drain water and set aside.Take red chillies and fennel seeds in a mixer.
- Add little of the dals mixture and grind it to a coarse mixture.Now add remaining dals,required water and grind it a semi coarse mixture.
- Grind it to a semi fine paste.Transfer to mixing bowl.Chop small onion,curry leaves,garlic and coriander leaves and get ready.
- Add chopped onion, curry leaves,chopped garlic,pepper powder and coriander leaves ,required salt.Mix well.The batter should be slightly runny in between idli and dosa batter consistency.
- Heat the dosa pan,grease with little oil, pour a laddle full of batter and spread it evenly a bit thick.Drizzle oil over the sides and let it cook, flip over other side and cook till golden brown and crisp at the edges.
Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.
- You can make big adais too.
- If you want to make crispy ada dosa then grind the batter fine, I wanted mine thick so made the batter a little coarse as shown in the steps.
- Make sure to cook on one side , only then flip over to other side else it will stick and will not be easy to turn over.
- No need of standing time,you can make adais instantly once you have the batter.
- The batter keeps well for 2-3 days if refrigerated.
- You can make thick adais or thin crispy dosa kinds.If you want to make thin adai dosas then make the batter little thin so that spreading is easy.
- I used my cast iron dosa pan so the edges were nicely crisp.
- Use freshly grinded pepper powder for great flavour.
