Drumstick Leaf Adai

     I can say, this is my hatred dish during my childhood days. Its b'cos of my mom, who used to prepare this often :P But now after my marriage, this becomes my Favorite recipe. Its b'cos, nowadays am not getting proper time (!) to prepare this Adai, eventhought its not much time consumer. Last month, my MIL brought lot of drumstick leaf from her hometown. I had lot more left, though I tried drumstick leaf in different forms. Finally, thought of adding the left out leaf in the Adai batter which adds more taste. Here comes......

INGREDIENTS
For Batter:
Toor Dhall - 1 cup
Green Gram - 1 cup
Bengal Gram - 1 cup
Idly Rice - 2 Cups
Red Chilly - 4 Nos.
Garlic - 5 Cloves
Drumstick Leaf - 1 1/2 cups
Hing - Pinch
Salt - To taste

To Temper:
Chopped Shallots - 8 to 9 Nos.
Urad Dhall - 1 spoon
Bengal Gram - 1 spoon
Mustard - 1/2 spoon
Small Coconut Pieces - 1/4 cup



METHOD:

    Soak Green gram overnite. Soak Toor Dhall + Bengal Gram and Idly Rice seperately for 3 hours. After 3 hours, grind Idly rice with Hing, red chillies and salt along with water. Then grind Toor Dhall, Bengal Gram and Green Gram and mix it with Idly rice batter. Not required to keep it for fermentation. Then add coconut pieces & drumstick leaf. Now Adai batter is ready.

    Keep a pan, heat a spoon of oil, allow a spoon of mustard to get splutters. Add Urad dhall and Bengal gram. Once it turns golden brown, add chopped shallots, fry it in oil for 3 minutes. Then put off the flame, allow it to cool. Then add the sauted mixture with the Adai batter, a minute before you prepare the Adai. Keep dosa pan, pour a spoon of oil, spread across the pan. Once the pan gets heated, take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the pan and spread across the pan. Add another spoon of oil, around the spreaded batter and toast it both the sides for 2 to 3 minutes. So that it becomes crispy.

Note:Instead of preparing it in the form of Dosa, Prepare the batter more thick, without adding water and prepare it as a Roti (Like Raagi roti, Wheat Roti)
