Samba wheat rava adai

This recipe is a guest post from Asha Sathyanarayanan. Thanks Asha for this healthy recipe

The recipe in her words..

I would sincerely like to thank my dearest friend Mrs. Geetha Radha Krishnan for giving me this recipe.


Samba wheat rava (1 1/2 cup)
Green gram, Brown chana, Brown gram 3 shared in a cup
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 or 4 red chilly
Curry leaves 2 sticks.(see photograph)

Soak all the ingredients for about 4 hrs and grind well to Dosa consistency. Add enough salt. This Adai can be prepared immediately without fermentation. Heat a non-stick tava and pour the batter. Spread into medium thickness adai. Turn and roast both the sides. I have always made this Adai without oil at all. Turned out very good. Serve hot with Sambhar, Idly Molagai podi or onion chutney.

You can also make chutney without coconut. Absolutely an excellent dish for Diabetics and weight watchers. Try this out and write to me.

Healthy Dosa. Perfect alternate for those who hate wheat upma.
