BM #125 Week 2 Day 2 - 

The recipe starting with the letter Q is always a tricky one but with Quinoa on hand I knew it would be a fairly easy one to crack.

In my current diet, I am avoiding rice and so I replaced the rice with the millet I had handy. The Adais turned out super flavorful and very filling too.

Recipe Inspiration - here
Ingredients - 

Quinoa 1 cup
Moong Dal 1/2 cup
Urad Dal 1/4 cup
Kuthiraivali / Barnyard Millet 2 cups
*Red Chilies 4-5
Salt as needed
Oil as needed to pan fry the Adais

* I took the short cut. I added 2 teaspoons of crushed red chili flakes after the batter was ground.

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak quinoa, moong dal, red chilies, urad dal and barnyard millet separately for about 4-6 hours. I soaked them overnight.

Drain and grind them individually adding as little water as needed. Mix all the batters, cover and set aside in a warm place for fermentation. My batter fermented well after 10 hours.

Add in the needed salt and mix well. Adjust the consistency of the batter by adding a little water. It should be the typical Dosa batter consistency.

Heat the griddle, pour a ladleful of batter and spread in a circular motion. Spray oil on the sides, cover and allow the underside to cook.

Remove the cover, flip the adai and cook the other side for a few seconds.

Remove the adai from the griddle and continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve with any chutney and / or sambar.


Preparation Time 20 minutes + Soaking Time 6 hours + Fermentation Time 10 hours
Makes approximately 20-24 Adais
