Oats Adai


Adais are healthy, quick alternative to the regular dosas and also the short soaking period and no fermentation makes them suitable during time crunches. Adais can be prepared immediately after grinding or the batter can be refrigerated until use. Replacing the rice with oats make them more healthier and they do taste exactly the same as the regualr rice version adais.

Ingredients:
1 cup oats (I use rolled oats.)
A handful each - toordal, urad dal, moongdal and chana dal
A handful each - cilantro and curry leaves
2 pinches of asafoetida powder
6 - 8 dry red chillies
1/4 cup fresh, shredded coconut
Salt to taste
1/2 cup finely minced onion

Method:
* Wash and soak dals together in water for a couple of hours or in hot water for an hour. Throw away the water after the soaking period.
* Add all the ingredients except onion to a blender. Add sufficient water and grind into a thick, coarse batter. The batter should not be runny.
* Next add the minced onion to the ground batter and mix well.
* Heat a tawa / iron griddle. When it is hot enough, pour a ladleful of batter at the center and spread it into a circle. Pour 1/2 tsp oil around the edges and cook for about a minute on medium flame. When it appears done on the bottom side, flip the adai. Pour another 1/2 tsp oil around the edges. Cook for another 30 seconds and remove the adai.
* Repeat the procedure with the remaining batter.
* Adais can be served with chutney / aviyal / sambhar or even plain if they are made spicy. I prefer it with jaggery powder. :)
