Prep Time: 2 Hr soaking time | Cook time: 2 mins per adai | Serves: 4
Barnyard millet - 1 cup
Flattened rice/ Poha / Aval - 1/4 cup
Black pepper - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds/ Jeera - 1 tsp
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Salt - As needed
1. Soak the millet for 2 hrs along with poha after washing it once. First powder pepper and jeera coarsely, keep aside and then grind the millet. I used my mortar and pestle.
2. Drain water from the soaked millet and grind it to a paste with salt. No need to grind very smooth, little coarse is fine. but not like rava, finer than that.
3. Mix powdered pepper, jeera and coconut, mix well. Check for salt.
4. Make thick adai with a ladle full of batter over hot tawa and cook both sides in medium flame until done. You can smear little oil after flipping.
o If you are making with regular rice, idly rice works best, or do it with parboiled rice. Soak for 3 hrs. Otherwise same procedure.
o You can add finely chopped coconut bits instead of grated coconut, it will be a nice texture twist for the adai.
o Poha is to make the adai soft.
o Coconut oil can be used for smearing.
Serve hot as such, no need for any accompaniment as it may suppress the pepper flavor. If you want, you can try anythogaiyal or coconut chutney.
