Barley Paruppu Adai

Usually we used to make out paruppu/dals adai with channadal,toor dal,urad dal, split yellow moongdal..When i was planning to make out this paruppu adai sterday, i wanted to make them more healthier than usual paruppu adai also i wanted to skip completely the adding of rice coz my mom's paruppu adais always goes for rice , thats y i tried & have added whole barley grains to my paruppu adai which i soaked for few hours along with those mixed dals...Trust me, this adai tastes fantastic, healthy, delicious and we didnt find out any difference with usual paruppu adai, along with spicy coconut chutney this paruppu adai tastes prefect for a evening dinner or for morning breakfast with hot coffee...Do try friends this combination,u will definitely like this healthy adais..This healthy paruppu dosai goes directly to Kiran's CWF-Barley..


2cups Barley
1cup Channadal
1/2cup Toor dal
1cup Yellow split moongdal
1/2cup Urad dal
4nos Dry red chillies
1tsp Fennel seeds
Salt

Soak the barley along with all dals for atleast 4 hours..grind the soaked dals and barley with dry red chillies & fennel seeds with enough water and salt with bit coarse paste...

Heat a nonstick pan...pour a ladle of this barley & paruppu adai batter, drizzle the oil and cook on both sides until the adai get well cooked..

Very healthy dosa, these days i too have started adding oats to our regular adai recipe. Barley will be a nice addition as well.

I recently tried barley in dosa and it came out very well. So I'm sure that this adai will also be good. Why don't you send it to Valli's Wholesome Breakfast event?
