Adai Dosa Recipe

Adai is one of my favourite dishes since I tasted it for the first time during my childhood. The beautiful golden colour of the dosa will be very inviting. Most importantly, it is a healthy recipe as it is prepared with mixture of lentils. Adai goes well with Avial(mixture of boiled vegetables cooked with coconut). I also like to have with powdered jaggery together with a small cube of butter on the top of a hot dosa. Here is the recipie! If you are interested, please do try it out and post your comments.

Adai Dosai Recipe Step 1

Grind them to a coarse texture by adding water little by little. Towards the end of the grinding process, add grated carrot, asafoedita, pepper, cumin seeds & salt and grind for 3 minutes. 

Add water sufficient enough to make the batter to a little thick consistency.(should be little thicker than the normal dosa batter). Keep the batter for atleast one hour before making dosa.

Adai Dosai Recipe Step 2

Heat the dosa tawa and spread the batter on a dosa pan, add a tablespoon of oil over it. Once it is cooked, turn it to the other side and leave it for a minute and then transfer it to a plate.

Adai Dosai Recipe Step 3


1. You can add finely chopped onion and curry leaves to the batter just before making dosa, which gives additional flavour to the dosa.

2. For a crispy dosa, cook it in medium flame till you see a nice golden brown colour.

3. Unlike normal dosa, adai dosa takes longer time to get cooked.

4. Ghee can also be used instead of Oil.
