This is one more easy dish, which can be made on the days we grind for idly batter. I either prepare paruppu adai or this one, on every batter grinding day. I have added drumstick leaves jus to add to the taste of the adai.
Raw Rice - 1 cup
Par Boiled Rice - 1 cup
Thuar Dhal - 2 tbsp
Green Chillies - 4
Red Chillies - 4
Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard+Urad dhal+ cumin seeds mixture - 2 tsp
Aesfoetida - 1 pinch
Onion - 2 big
Green chillies - 2
Curry Leaves + coriander Leaves - few or Drumstick leaves.
Soak the rice and dhal together for 4 hours. In a grinder, add the chillies and fennel seeds.
Once they are grinded well, add the rice and dhal. Grind it to a smooth batter.
In a kadai, heat 1 tsp of oil and add the items mentioned for seasoning.
Saute well till the raw smell goes off. Mix this with the batter, add salt and mix well.
The batter should be little thinner.
Heat the tawa and prepare adai's out of this batter.
If you add drumstick leaves, the taste will be heavenly.
I am sending this Arisi Adai to the Ravishing Rice event conducted by Nags
