Pancakes are a universal favorite, and so here we have a typically Indian pancake recipe to love. It’s loaded with proteins from different varieties of dal, and also carbohydrates from the rice.

1.   Wash and soak the rice and dals together for 2-3 hrs. Grind with asafoetida and salt to a smooth paste. 

2.   Chop the curry leaves and mix with the batter. Now allow it to ferment for 3-4 hrs. 

3.   Heat a non stick tava, pour half a ladle of the batter on the tava to make each mini adai. 

4.   Top adais individually with onion, tomato, cucumber, cheese and gun powder.
