Paruppu Adai

Paruppu Adai

This is one dish we all in our family enjoy eating. we will sit around the table to break the dosas into chunks while chatting. one will prepare the dosas and others will make chunks from these dosas. My grand mom will tell the stories about her mom preparing this dish. It will be fun watching her.

Now whenever I prepare this dish those memories will bring a smile to my face.I posted this recipe long back and again reposting  and submitting this recipe for Gayathri's Walk Through Memory Lane

1.Boiled rice – 2 cups soaked
2.Tur dhall – ¾ cup
3.Mustard Seeds 1 tsp
4.Urid dhall – 1 tsp
5.Red Chillies – 6 -7
6.Garlic - 15 to 20 pods
7.Salt as per requirement
8.Turmeric powder ½ tsp
9.Oil 2 tbsp
10.Curry leaves

Soak boiled rice and grind it into batter . while grinding add salt. Prepare dosas from this batter and keep it aside. Let the dosas get cooled and break all the dosas into small chunks. Keep it aside.
While preparing dosas cook tur dhall with turmeric powder. Heat a big pan or wok and add oil . Put mustard seeds, urid dhall, red chillies, garlic and curry leaves . Let all the ingredients turn golden brown then add the cooked tur dhall .
Add salt and let it boil for sometimes then add the dosa chunks into the dhall and mix well. Blend all the dosa chunks into the dhall well. Let it get heated for few more minutes. Serve hot.

I already submitted this to Vardhini's Herbs and Flowers event long back.
