Traditional Karthigai adai

Karthigai Adai is a very traditional , healthy and tasty South Indian Adai dosa variety made with combination of two rice varieties and four dal varieties ground together along with
pepper, cumin seeds,red chillies, salt and curry leaves.  This karthigai adai is very similar to our regular adai dosai but the only difference is that we don't add pepper and cumin seeds for regular adai ,moreover we don't add onions for Karthigai adai. This karthigai adai is served as neivedanam during Karthigai Deepam festival along with Karthigai Pori and Appam.Check out how to make the traditional Karthigai adai recipe below.

✍️Use very less quantity of urad dal or you can avoid it completely because it will ferment the batter very quickly and will change the flavour of the adai.
✍️Use the adai batter immediately after grinding.
✍️We do not add onions for this adai if you are keeping it for neivedanam.
