MORU MORU ADAI RECIPE / CRISPY ADAI DOSAI WITH CHUTNEY.

Print Friendly and PDF
Adai with Chutney!!
Crispy adai / Moru moru adai recipe/ lentil dosa. After seeing so many adai dosai in blogs, I found that no two adai recipes are the same. U all have your own style of making it with different proportions of lentils/ dals. So I wanted to post mine with which you get a crispy (moru moru) adai. My husband likes this adai just because its crispy. I always eat adai with sugar as accompaniment. But my mom used to make curry leaves chutney. This is also a great combination. So I have given the recipes of both adai and chutney.

Moru moru adai


Ingredients required: (1 cup = 240ml)
  • Idli rice – 1 cup
  • Toor dal – 1/4 cup  
  • Chana dal / Kadalai paruppu – 1/4 cup
  • Red chilly – 5 – 7 nos ( Depends on spice, I used 4)
  • Ginger – A small piece to grind  & a small piece to add in batter.
  • Asafetida / Hing – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt  & water – as needed.
  • Big onion – 2 nos (Finely chopped)
  • Curry leaves – a sprig (chopped)
  • Coconut pieces – 1/4 cup
  • Cooking oil – to cook.
How to make:
  • Wash and soak the rice and dals together for 2 - 4 hours.
  • Grind it slightly coarse like rava by adding red chillies, hing and salt.
  • Add water if adai batter is too thick.Adai batter should be in pouring consistency. (But not too watery)
adai batter batter consistency!!
  • Add the chopped onions and curry leaves , ginger pieces and small coconut pieces into the batter. Mix it well. Check for salt..
garnished adai batter
  • Heat a dosa tawa greasing with oil and pour the batter into it.
  • Spread it and sprinkle sesame oil around it.
On the tawa!!
  • Cook in open flame in medium flame.
  • Flip the dosa and cook the other side.
Cooked adai!!
Yummy, crispy adai dosa is ready. As we have used more toor dal than chana dal , adai will be crispy.




 CURRY LEAVES CHUTNEY
Ingredients:
  • Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Red chilli – 2 to 3 nos(increase based on ur taste)
  • Tamarind – 1 seed.
  • Salt & water – as needed.
Method:
  • Grind all the above to a smooth paste.No seasoning required.
Serve the yummy hot adai with curry leaves chutney!!

Adai looks really crisp. I think the absence of urad dal and the batter texture is giving that crispiness. I will try this next time. I love crispy adais with powdered jaggery.
