Ragi Adai

#KaezhvaraguAdai #RagiAdai : My mother used to make ragi adai very often both spicy and sweet version. But I completely forgot this tiffin. I haven't done it for many many years. My daughter told me that she tried ragi adai after getting the recipe from one of her friends mother. After hearing that I also made ragi spicy adai last week. Let us see how to make it.

Kaezhvaragu Adai [ Ragi - Finger Millet Adai ]

Ingredients :
1 cup                                 Ragi Flour
1 Tbsp                               Soft Oats [ optional ]
1 Tsp                                 oil
1/2 Tsp                              Till ( sesame )
1/2 Tsp                              Cumin
1/4 Tsp                              Omam ( Optional )
1/4 Tsp                              Asafoetida ( Optional )
2 or 3                                Green Chilly ( thinly chop )
1                                       Onion ( nicely chop )
1 Tbsp                               Carrot grated
1/2 Tsp                              Salt ( Adjust )
15                                      Curry leaves ( nicely chop )
4 Tsp                                 Coriander leaves nicely chopped

Oil to make Adai

Method of preparing Dough :

Take all the ingredients in a wide mouthed vessel or a basin.
Mix well with your hands and then add lukewarm water.
Knead to a slightly thick dough.

Method of making Adai :

Heat a tawa on a medium flame.
Take a piece of banana leaf or a plastic sheet. I have taken a plastic sheet.
Smear oil over the sheet.
Place a big ball of prepared dough.
Oil the fingers and start spreading the dough evenly into an adai.
Sprinkle oil over the hot tawa and carefully transfer the adai onto tawa.
Put some oil over the adai.

Flip the other side and cook well.
When both the sides are cooked well transfer onto a plate.

This tiffin does n't need any side dish.
But it can be enjoyed with tomato sauce or coconut chutney.
