Horsegram Adai/Horsegram Dosa

Picture courtesy : wiki

Horsegram or "Kollu" in tamil is a bean variety that helps in reducing weight. When I said J that I have out horsegram in the Adai, he winked and told,"Do you think I am a horse?" No guesses for that. Its implied in the name,yes it is an Horse's food. May be thats why the Horses are so fit and tall huh ?!

  • one cup of boiled rice 
  • 1/4 cup of horsegram
  • 1/4 cup of toor dal
  • 1/4 cup of yellow moong dal
  • a handful of raw rice 
  • a handful of channa dal
  • 6-7 red chillies
  • pinch of hing
  • few curry leaves 
  • 1 cup of onions(optional)
  • 1/4 cup of grated coconut (optional)
  • Soak all the dals along with the rice for 8 hours
  • Grind the dal-rice mix along with hing and chillies to a smooth batter.
