Adai dosa (Indian crepes) is another healthy option to make for breakfast or after school for the kids. Its made with mixed lentils, rice and helps me add protein to our diet. I normally eat these delicious crepes after my workouts.  The batter can be stored for 1-2 days in the refrigerator. You can serve these with fresh coconut or chayote chutney.


1 cup idly rice

2 cups organic sona masoori rice (easily found at the Indian grocery stores)

1 cup chana dal

1/2 tuvar dal

1/2 urad dal

4-5 red chillies

2 cloves garlic (optional)

Salt to taste


Step 1

Mix all the lentils and rice together and wash all the ingredients three times.  Rinse and soak the mixture with red chillies for 2-3 hours.

Step 2

Grind the mixture in the blender with garlic and let the batter ferment for 8-9 hours. Do NOT blend the batter to a very fine paste.

Step 3

Add salt to the batter before making the dosa (crepes)
