Iron Adai

Do you want Iron sakthi in your food??? Do you want to brush your tummy clean????

Here is a very healthy version of adai which does the above and is very tasty too. Come on lets graze a little. :) :) Eat healthy and live long :)


Raw rice - 1 cup
Par boiles rice - 1 cup
Thoor dhall - 1 cup
Coconut - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Red chillies - 8
Drumstick greens (Murunga keerai) - As much as you want
Asafoetida - a pinch
Salt - for taste


Soak raw rice, par boiled rice and thoor dhall together in water for 2 hours. Grind it coarsely along with other ingredients except for the greens. Once the batter is ready add greens to it and mix well. Make adais in tawa, roasting it on both the sides. Greens adai is ready to eat.

It goes best with Avial or butter or onion pickle and also with curd. :) For kids sugar is the best option along with adai. :) Happy eating. :)
