Rice Adai/Rava adai

               This adai my mom will do when rice is remaining in the night.When ever mom use to prepare this adai i use to remember when i first tasted this adai.It was 6 yrs back when i went to my aunty's home for my cousins wedding.During that time a lot of rice was left over and when everyone was thinking wat to do, my aunty's cook said she will prepare a adai with that left over rice.When everyone were thinking how its possible she prepared this and gave and it was really good.This is the first time im preparing this adai without my mom's assistance and it came really well.Here goes the recipe.

Ingredients :

Cooked rice(app) 3 cups
Rava/Sooji 1 cup
Onion(big) 1 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves 2 tbsp (finely chopped)
Green Chillies 5-6
Curry leaves few
Salt to taste

Method :

1. Mash the rice nicely by sprinkling required water if necessary.Then add the finely chopped onion,coriander,curry leaves,green chillies and required salt.

2.Now make the dough to equal size balls

3.Take a plastic sheet and pat the balls like we do for vadai.

4.Then put the adai upside down on the tawa and remove the plastic sheet immediately and slowly.

5.Close the tawa with the lid and keep in the medium flame and cook.

6.Cook till the upper side of the  adai turns brown.

7.Once the upper side of the adai becomes brown turn the adai upside down and keep in low flame and cook.Serve the adai hot hot with any types of chutney.

Note :

1.Adai should not be too thin or too thick.

2.While we pat the balls in the plastic sheet each and every time we should wipe the sheet with the water and wet our hands with the water before we start to pat the balls.

3.In the centre have to put a hole so that while cooking in the tawa we can pour the oil in the centre portion for even cooking.

4.Coconut chutney will go well with this adai.Should take care to serve hot.Once it cools down means wont be that much nice to have it.

5.Should take care while adding the water while  mixing of all the ingredients together with the mashed rice.

6.If we reduce the rava content there may be possibility of the adai to break while put in the tawa and if increase the rava more it may become thick.So should be careful while adding it.

7.I cooked 3/4th cup of rice.
