Whole Wheat Corn Roti / Adai N Carrot Raitha

        Day 2 of Blogging Marathon Under the theme "Whole Grain Dishes" and today's healthy and fiber rich recipe, Whole Wheat Corn Adai. More than Adai dosa i like this Wheat Adai and Ragi Adai more. My grandmom makes this wheat/godhumai adai often and give us for evening tiffin/Dinner. These adai are very tasty n wholesome perfect for light Dinner. To make it more healthy, i added sweet corn to my regular wheat adai that turned out so soft and flavorful adai. I made Carrot Raitha to go with this adai, on the whole it was so satifying and yummy dinner. Now to the recipe...

  • After that add tempered ingredients and combine well and now add the ground corn paste and knead it to a very smooth dough using very little water.(the dough should be little thick then the chapathi dough).
  • Let the dough rest for 20-30 minutes.
  • Then again sprinkle 1-2 tsp of wheat flour and keand the dough again for a minute and divide it to 8 equal parts.
  • Take one part,roll and on a greased plastic sheet/ziploc pat the dough to a little thick adai.
  • Then flip the adai dough on the heated tawa and toast on both sides till golden brown spot appears.
  • That's it...Tasty Whole Wheat Cron Adai ready. Serve hot along with pickle or Raitha.
  • I served with Carrot Raitha...
