I don’t write about recipes though I love cooking but I have decided to write about some of the recipes, which I came across my travel and really liked but these are usually not available in restaurants. Here I am sharing a recipe, which is not so popular but full of nutrition.
I had a dish called “Adai”, it’s a kind of dosa or savory pancake. It is a protein rich dish with some carbohydrates, whole sum meal. I had this in one of the homestays in Cochin. I asked for the recipe but the lady who made this was not able to explain it due to the language barrier (She didn’t know English and I didn’t know Malayalam).
I looked for this in restaurants but could not find, so I explained one of my dear Mallu friend about it (Person who’s parents from Kerala) and got the recipe to make at ttheirhome. I make it for breakfast and it’s our family favorite now.
Toor Dal : 1 Cup (Split Pigeon Peas)
Chana Dal : 1 Cup (Split Black Gram)
Rice : 1 Cup (Can use any variant)
Curry leaves (4-5 stripes)
Red chilly (Dried whole) optional
Salt to taste
Asafoetida : One pinch

Soak both Dal and rice in water after washing twice.
