Cracked Wheat Oats Adai n Chutney (T & T)

( Click picture for enlarged view )

This month I came across Usha's "Veginspirations Blog" because of the ongoing event Tried and Tasted July, I saw so many lovely recipes I bookmarked nearly 20 recipes, all her recipes are very unique and healthy. Best part is most of them are her innovations. Here is my first recipe attempt from her blog. After seeing her collection I became a big fan of of her recipes, from her huge collection I picked her broken wheat oats adai and tomato chutney.There are so many more I have to try : )

Cracked Wheat Oats Adai

I didnt make any change to this recipe except for quantity and i didn't add red chilli while blending but garnished with chilli flakes and onions.The original recipe is here.It came out superb

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup cracked wheat
  • 1/4 cup split yellow pigeon peas (toor dhal)
  • 1/4 cup split yellow chick pea lentil (chana dhal)
  • 1/4 cup split black gram lentil (urad dhal)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 inch piece ginger
  • 2 green chilies
  • a pinch of asafoetida(hing)
  • salt to taste
  • few drops of oil for each adai
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
Cooking Procedure

Wash all the lentils nicely and soak them with oats and cracked wheat enough water for 2 hrs.

Grind the mixture along with ginger, green chilies to a slightly coarse texture and thick batter ( Add water as required )

To the batter, add salt to taste, hing and mix well.

Heat a tawa and pour one handfull batter and spread it with circular motion like dosa,adai should be not too thick or too thin.

Top it with a sprinkle of chopped onions and red chilli flakes

Add few drops of oil and let it cook for a min then flip it. Remove when both sides are properly cooked and looks slightly crispy.

Remove and serve hot with chutney.

This tomato onion chutney is one more lovely recipe from Usha's blog. I took recipe as it is, i didnt have curry leaves to add. The original recipe is here.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/8 tsp fenugreek seed (methi seeds)
  • 2-3 red chillies
  • a pinch asafoetida (hing)
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
Heat oil in pan, add mustard seeds and methi seeds once mustard seeds splutter add onion and fry till it becomes translucent. Then add tomatoes, hing and salt and cook till tomatoes become tender.Keep it aside.

When cool grind this mixture to a smooth paste and serve with adai.

I am sending both these recipes to Tried and Tasted july event hosted by Saveur, which was originally started by Zlamushka and now run by Lakshmi.
