Red Cow Peas Adai

Cow peas looks like beans, but are smaller, and brown to red in colour, with a great nutty flavour. It could be marble coloured, green or white too. The red and brown varieties are more common. Like other legumes, they are very rich in protein and other nutrients.Cow peas cook faster than beans,they are used in preparing various soups, or boiled and eaten with yam, plantain, I tried it out Adais from these red cow peas, an excellent protein packed breakfast..this adai tastes awesome when served with coconut chutney else with tomato chutney..

1cup Parboiled Rice
1/2 cup Red cow peas
1/2cup Urad dal
1inch Ginger pieces
2nos Dry red chillies
Soak redcow peas with enough water overnite..soak parboiled rice for 2 hrs as well as urad dal..drain the excess of water from the red cow peas n wash 3 times with cold water n keep aside..

Grind bit coarsely rice with ginger n red chillies, grind both urad dal n soaked redcow peas bit finely, add both batters with enough salt n keep aside for 2 hours..

Heat a tawa, pour a ladle full of redcowpeas batter n turn them in circular shape n cook them with enough oil..

Tasty RedCowPeas Adai is ready!
