Adai Dosa Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 07:09:00
Adai dosa is one of the most common breakfast recipe everywhere in south India. It is a very nutritious dosa because the batter comprises mainly many types of dals and rice. So, this dosa is filled with carbohydrates and proteins which our body requires the most. So, if your children fuss over eating rice, you can prepare this dosa and feed it to them. It is almost like a full meal. I have also added fenugreek / methi leaves which is again, a rich source of iron for the body. It is a laxative and thereby relieves the problem of constipation. Also it is a very important source of vegetable for growing children.

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. Instead of fenugreek / methi leaves you can also add drumstick leaves.
  2. Palak ( Spinach )  leaves can also be added along with methi leaves but I assure you that methi leaves is the perfect combination.
  3. If desired, onions and coriander leaves can also be added.
  4. This batter should be grounded coarsely and so it requires a little more oil for frying.
  5. Generally, this batter does not require any fermentation
