Lentil Pancakes | Cooks JoyOne of the dishes I make regularly at home is adai and they are basically crepes made with rice and lentils. There is a ton of variations and I have already posted quinoa adai, bajra adai and thavalai adai. These crepes can be made in a jiffy since there is no fermentation involved, but a couple of hours of soaking time is needed. You can add spinach to make it more nutritious, onions, etc. Adai is perfect for breakfast or dinner. Off to the recipe.

Kaara Adai

Lentil Crepes.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Soak lentils and rice for about 2 hours. Grind to a coarse batter along with chillies and asafoetida. Mix in salt, coconut and curry leaves.

Heat a griddle and pour a ladle of batter; spread to form a circle. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the edges. Flip over in a minute or two. When both sides are golden brown, adai is done.

Serve with chutney of choice.

My Notes
Adai batter is slightly thicker than dosa batter.
