A different variety of rasam, a bit heavier than the light recipe because of the addition of coconut. Freshly ground spices add amazing flavor to this wonderful rasam that is popular in the south. Enjoy with hot rice, or as a soup!
Adai is a bit difficult to describe – it’s like dosai, but totally different in its composition (more hearty with the dals), taste (has some spice and heat to it) and presentation (not as thin). Maybe a rustic cousin of dosai? A high protein, wholesome and complete meal that doesn’t take hours of prep, no fermentation required, and is almost instant except for the soaking time of 2 hours required for the rice and the dals. I like to soak them at lunch, and it takes less than 30 minutes to grind, add the vegetables, and to have dinner on the table!
