A traditional favorite breakfast and snack of south India, non-other than the classic Medu Vada. Very popular all over India, and is relished by all. Small ring shaped dumplings made with flavorful urad dal batter, deep fried until golden. Crispy from outside and super fluffy from the inside. The flavor is insane when served with sambar and coconut chutney. Sheer delight to start off your day.

Adai Recipe / Multi-lentil dosa | South Indian Healthy Kids Lunch Box Recipe
Rice - 1 Cup
Skinless Black Gram / Urad Dal - ¼ Cup
Split Bengal Gram / Chana Dal - ¼ Cup
Split Pigeon Peas / Tuvar Dal - ⅛ Cup
Skinless Split Green Gram / Moong Dal - ⅛ Cup
Dried Red Chilies - 6-8
Asafoetida / Hing - ¼ Tsp
Curry Leaves - Few
Cumin Seeds - ½ Tsp
Salt - To Taste
Oil - As required
In a bowl, add the rice, and all the dals. Add water and wash-rinse twice.
Then add the chilis, curry leaves, cumin seeds and hing. Add 2½ cups of water and let it soak for a minimum of 2-3 hours.
After it has been soaked, blend to a kind of coarse paste. Transfer to a bowl, add salt and mix well.
Heat a tawa, smear a lil bit of oil and remove off the excess using a tissue/cloth. Spread a ladle full of batter and make a adai somewhere between a thickness of a uttapam and a dosa.
Cook in medium flame, once the top dries a little smear oil in the sides and cook till the edges are brown. Using a turner take the adai off the pan and serve! Tastes best with some onion chutney to me 🙂
