Carrot, Barley& Quinoa Paruppu Adai

Paruppu adai, most of us would have prepared atleast once in a while, this time i went for a healthy adai by adding barley along with quinoa and grated carrots to make out this gorgeous looking healthy paruppu adai, apart from this barley and quinoa addition i followed the same process as we usually go for making paruppu adai, also to make them more colourful and healthy i have added some grated carrots while grinding the soaked dals, barley and quinoa, this healthy adai takes marvellous along with spicy coconut chutney and its really nutritious to enjoy without any guilt, quite a beautiful and delicious adai and a better way to eat barley and quinoa together along with dals...Sending to CWF-Quinoa guest hosted by Priya Mitharwal..

Carrot adai


1cup Barley
1/2cup Quinoa
1cup Channadal
1/2cup Toor dal
1/2cup Yellow split moongdal
1/2cup Urad dal
1/2cup Brown rice
4nos Dry red chillies
1tsp Fennel seeds
2cup Carrots (grated)
Salt

Soak the barley,quinoa, brown rice along with all dals for atleast 4 hours..grind the soaked dals along with barley, quinoa and rice with dry red chillies & fennel seeds, grated carrots with enough water and salt as bit coarse paste...

Heat a nonstick pan...pour a ladle of this  paruppu adai batter, drizzle the oil and cook on both sides until the adai get well cooked..Serve hot with spicy coconut chutney..
