Toor dhall - 1½ cups
Uncooked rice - 1½ cups
Red dry chillies - 4 or 5
Garlic - 8 to 10 pods
Cumin seeds – 2 to 3 tsps
Salt - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Onion - 2 finely chopped
Curry leaves

Soak uncooked rice , toor dhal together for 2 hours . grind the rice and toor dhall .while grinding put the red chillies, cumin seeds, garlic pods, turmeric powder and salt. Grind a bit coarsely. Do not grind too smoothly.
Sauté onion and curry leaves. Mix the sautéed onion in the batter.
Heat the tawa and pour a ladle full of batter in it and make adai. Pour oil in the edges of the adai. Wait till it turns golden brown. Turn the adai and again wait till it gets cooked.
