Recipe by SUSMITA
"Ada is a type of dosa (crepe) usually served at breakfast. It is made with a mixture of lentils and rice, and is quite filling. It is typically eaten with podi (south Indian spicy chutney powder) and mango pickle (avakkai). Since the batter is made with raw lentils, it gets fermented easily. It will keep in the refrigerator for 1 or 2 days maximum."

.I love Indian food (my very favorite) and dosa is my passion! Thanks for an easy recipe for those of us who love Indian and novice at cooking it!!
I used the Magic Bullet to puree the dal and chiles (several batches) which made it much easier. The recipe makes A LOT more than 15 dosas! I served them with the Zucchini Chutney (recipe on website). It needs an interesting sauce to 'finish' the flavor.
Turned out pretty well. I just used ground cumin instead of whole as I did not want seeds just like that this time. Leftovers can be made into uttapam by laying out a little thicker and adding fresh chopped onion garlic and cilantro. Thanks for the recipe!
