Adai dosa - Recipe for Adai dosa - How to make Adai dosai - South-indian adai dosa

Adai dosa is one of very popular dosas in south-india. Adai with aviyal is one of the deadly combinations. Adai dosa is always delicious as it has all spicies mixed. This adai dosai contains more protien as we are using dal here. Lets us see today how to prepare adai dosa batter first and then adai dosa.

For batter:


1. Rice - 2 cups (boiled rice)
2. Toor dal - 1/4 cup
3. Moong dal - 1/4 cup
4. Red chillies - 5 nos
5. Corainder seeds(dania) - 2 tsps
6. Asafoedita(hing) powder - some
7. salt to taste


1. Onion - 1 medium (chopped)
2. Carrots - 1 shredded
3. Curry and coriander leaves - some

Method of preparation:

1. Take a big bowl, add rice and dal & wash it cleanly. Soak this mixture for 2 hrs.
2. After 2 hrs, grind this mixture with some salt, red chillies and coriander seeds. While grinding don't make the batter too nice and soft. Just grind the batter 3/4th i.e like rava.
3. When you are done with grinding, transfer the batter in a bowl and add all the seasoning mentioned above.
4. Some people will leave this mixture for about 4 to 6 hrs like a idli batter. Usually you can also make adai dosa immediately after grinding.
5. Some people will like thick adai dosa rather thin. So based on your taste you can prepare the batter. If you want thin adai dosa just add one or two cups of water into the batter and do thin adai dosa.
6. Now heat the dosa pan and do the dosa based on your taste.  Add one tsp of oil on the top of dosa and cover the lid.We personally like thin crispy adai dosa.

That's it. Now adai dosa is ready. Usually adai dosa, you need to cook both sides as it usually takes more time than normal dosa.

Best combination:

Coconut chutney, aviyal and sugar are the best combination for this adai dosa.
