Multigrain Adai(8-grains Adai)/Multigrain Pancake

After making Barley dosa/Barley Adai and jowar dosa/Adai, i m now making adai with all the grains i have at home. This multi-grain adai will be a definite hit at your place,even if you are into regular adai making or not. The batter can be thinned a little bit to be made as dosai also. I make it as dosai for kuttu and bala and for us it is a thick adai. It tastes divine with aviyal (mixed vegetables with mild coconut masala in yogurt). But can be served with hot sambar and mild chutney of your choic.

1/4 Cup of Each of the following
  1. Barley
  2. Jowar/Sorghum
  3. Ragi/Finger Millet
  4. Chana Dal/Gram Dal
  5. Tuvar Dal/Split Pigeon PEas
  6. Horse gram dal/Kollu/Kulith
  7. Dhuli moong/split green gram or green gram whole
  8. Matta Rice/Palakkad Maata Rice (Optional)
Gingely oil for making the adai's

Other Ingredients
5-6 Red Chilies
1 Large Onion
2 sprigs of curry leaves
a small piece of ginger
Forgot to keep Horsegram/Kulith while photographing!
  • Take the grains all together in a big bowl, wash them twice with water. Soak in water for around 3-4 hours. The level of water should be an inch above the grains.
  • After the required time, drain the water, take the grains in a mixer, along with other ingredients, add 1/4 cup of water and grind well to a batter.
  • Transfer the batter to another vessel. The batter will be very thick. Add 1/4 Cup of water to the batter. If planning to make thin adai or like dosa,then add another 1/4 Cup of water.
  • Heat a Iron skillet/Non-stick pan, pour a laddle of batter in the center, and spread it to circle using the back of the laddle.
  • Dot the edges with gingely oil. cook until crisp, flip and cook the other side too until crisp. Remove it to a serving plate. 
  • Serve Hot with Aviyal or a Chutney of your choice.
