I was bumped with so many awards from my friends Suja and Chaitrali. Suja shared the versatile blogger award. As per the rule I need to share it with 15 blogger friends and tell 7 things about me. Suja has lovely collection of traditional and authentic recipes all the way from God's own Country.... Kerala! Do visit her blog and enjoy some lip smacking recipes from her space. Chairali was very kind to share all the other awards with me. Name of Chaitrali's blog is I'm not a chef... Interestingly she is a chef who not only holds a degree in hotel management but also has a master degree from the hospitality industry. I love the way she blogs restaurant style recipes which are not just easy to follow but also tasty and yummy. Do visit her blog for a complete roller coaster foodie ride...

Adai is native of T N . Though there are many variety of it like adai, kara adai, parappu adai etc. I always felt the dal or parappu adai is way too healthy. Here goes the recipe for Dal adai...
Moong dal - 1 cup
Urad dal - 1 cup
Toor dal - 1 cup
Onion - 1 nos
Green chillies - 1 nos
Freshly chopped coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Dry red chillies - 4 nos
Grated coconut - 4 tbsp
Hing or asafoetida - one pinch
Salt for taste
Oil for frying
Soak all the dals together for 2 hours. Grind it along with red chillies and grated coconut to a coarse paste. Add finely chopped green chillies, onions, fresh coriander leaves, hing, salt and mix well. Pour the batter on a hot tawa using a laddle spoon and just pat it. Add enough oil and fry. Turn over, add more oil and cook till its done. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
Adai batter does not require fermentation and can be a instant recipe for breakfast, evening snacks etc. The dal adai version is very healthy when compared to rice adai, coconut adai, kara adai etc.
