Adai(savory Indian Pancakes)


1 cMixture of dhals*
2 cLong grained rice
Salt to taste.


*(use any combination of tur dhal, chana dal or even split yellow

Wash and rinse the dhals and rice thoroughly. When the rinse water
runs clear, soak the dhals and rice together in a bowl with fresh
water for a couple of hours. Drain the dhal-rice mixture and grind
into a somewhat coarse mixture in a blender using water when
necessary. Empty the batter into a bowl, add some salt and let it
rest for at least an hour. You could also let it ferment overnight if
you like a sourdough tang in your pancakes.

To make the pancakes, heat a non-stick/well-seasoned cast iron
skillet on a moderate stove. If a few drops of water bounce off the
pan, the pan is hot enough and you can proceed to make the pancakes.

Drop a ladleful of the pre-prepared batter in the center of the pan
and with the back of the ladle, swirl the batter from inside to
outside to form a thin round pancake. Wait till the top looks dry,
wait another minute if you like them crisp and flip to cook the other
side. Remove onto a plate and eat immediately with a nice coriander
chutney. (Continue preparing pancakes in the same way, till you run
out of batter and/or chutney. The batter will also keep in the fridge
for almost a week and you can prepare the pancakes when the mood
strikes you.)

Variation: Can add finely chopped onions/jalapenos/spinach/ginger/a
few cumin seeds, anything you fancy, to the batter before making the
pancakes. You will however not be able to make neat circular
pancakes. Instead, you will end up with (tasty) irregular shaped ones.
