Bajra Adai

Ingredients to make Bajra Adai

  • Pearl millet (Bajra) - 1 cup
  • Raw rice - 1 cup
  • Black gram (Urad dal) - 1/4 cup
  • Bengal gram ( Chana dal) - 1/4 cup
  • Green gram (Moong dal) - 1/4 cup
  • pigeon peas (Toor dal) - 1/4 cup
  • Green chilli - 1
  • ginger - 1
  • curry leaves - a few
  • asafoetida powder (Hing) - to taste

How to make Bajra Adai

  1. Wash and soak the bajra and rice together for about an hour. Similarly, wash and soak the lentils (dals) separately for about 1 hour as well.
  2. In a mixer, grind together the green chili and ginger first. Once done, add the bajra-rice portion and grind to a smooth paste using enough, but not too much water.
  3. Now add the dals, salt, hing and curry leaves and grind coarsely, so the dals still remain visible in a semolina (rawa) consistency.
  4. Transfer this batter to a bowl and let it rest for about 10 minutes.
  5. Heat a tawa, add a little oil and pour a ladle-ful of batter. Cook till both sides are golden brown.
  6. Serve hot with desired accompaniment.
