About Horsegram (Kulith / Kollu) Adai or Pancakes Recipe

An undervalued superfood - Horsegram or Kulith or Kollu that has umpteen health benefits, is gluten free, diabetic friendly and excellent for weight loss too. Try these delicious pancakes or adais and you will be a huge fan of Horsegram, just like us at home! Since the recipe is for kids and they love cheese, I have used just 1 tblsp of grated cheddar cheese (that looks more like carrots) on top of the pancakes. A glass of milk, some ketchup for dipping the pancakes and foxnuts or makhana that are roasted in ghee for some extra munching completes the meal. Serve this as a breakfast or a 4 pm snack option just before they venture out for playing in the sun.

Ingredients to make Horsegram (Kulith / Kollu) Adai or Pancakes

  • Kulith or horsegram – 1.5 cups
  • Split black gram (Kali Urad Dal) – 1 cup
  • rice – 1 cup
  • chana dal – ¼ cup
  • Tur dal or Arhar dal – ¼ cup
  • hing – a generous pinch
  • jeera or Cumin seeds – 1.5 tblsp coarsely ground
  • salt as per taste
  • water as required to grind the batter
  • curry leaves few sprigs
  • Few tblsps of sesame oil or ghee to cook the dosas

How to make Horsegram (Kulith / Kollu) Adai or Pancakes

  1. Wash and soak the dals together for atleast 2 to 3 hours and then grind them into a smooth batter by adding water.
  2. Add the coarse cumin, salt as required, asafoetida, curry leaves and mix the batter well.
  3. Heat and grease a tava. Pour a ladle of dosa batter and spread it evenly. Drizzle with sesame oil or ghee (for kids especially).
  4. Let it cook completely before flipping and turning on the other side.
  5. Once cooked, serve hot with some cheddar cheese, tomato ketchup or gunpowder / Molagapodi for adults

My Tip:

Stays well in the refrigerator for atleast 4-5 days. In summers, I tend to avoid adding salt to the entire batch of batter and take only a small portion of batter, as required and add the necessary seasonings, choice of herbs, salt and onions etc. It remains fresh for a longer period of time.
