Red Rice Adai – Sigappu Arisi Adai

January 22, 2019 Breakfast/DinnerDosa Corner  No comments

A very late Happy New Year to all of u. Its been a long time since I disappeared from here. Sorry about that. Hope u all had a good start to the new year. This recipe is about Red Rice Adai. A healthy mix of red rice and lentils. It is a very simple recipe to make. All u need to plan is the soaking time. No fermentation required. Can be used immediately. Adai is a favourite at home. I usually make another dosa/adai variety (batter) handy to cope the busy weekdays along with the Idli/Dosa batter. It also adds a variety to the normal boring dosa!

Now to the recipe..

Red Rice Adai Ingredients:

  • Red Rice – 2 cups
  • Chana Dal – 1/2 cup
  • Toor Dal – 1/4 cup
  • Kollu/Horsegram – 1/4 cup
  • Moong Beans – 1/4 cup
  • Godhuma Rava/Wheat Rava – 1/4 cup

  • Oil – to drizzle
  • Salt – as needed
  • Asafoetida – a generous pinch

  • Take red rice in a separate bowl and the lentils in a different bowl. Wash and soak red rice along with 5 red chillies.


  • Wash and soak the lentils separately in a bowl. In a mixer or grinder, add the soaked red rice and start grinding. Let it grind coarsely. Now add the soaked lentils along with the coarsely ground red rice.


  • Grind it coarsely with little water. It should not be very smooth. Add required salt and switch off the grinder. Now the batter is ready. Add a generous pinch of asafoetida and finely chopped onions. (Missed to take a pic before mixing the batter) Add little water if needed to adjust the consistency of the batter.


  • Heat a tava and pour the batter and spread in circular motion. Drizzle some oil. Flip & cook on both sides until golden brown. This will take a bit more time to cook when compared to the normal dosa.

  1. Adai will take a longer time to cook when compared to dosa. So be patient.
  2. Adjust red chillies according to your spice levels. U can add red chilli powder too.
  3. U can add finely chopped carrot, beans along with onions to make even more healthier.
  4. The batter stores well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days without adding the onions. Add onions just while making the adai for the required amount of batter only.
