This 16 Bean Adai is a treat which i came across in Saffron Trail. I have made this adai a couple of times and v as a family loved this dish!!
A high protein food,different in its own way just makes a heartwarming dish.
Thought i would share the recipe:
16 Bean Soup Mix-1 Cup
Brown rice(long grain)-1 Cup
Whole urad dhall/muzhu ulundhu -a handful
Red Chillies-5 to 6 nos.
Green Chillies-2 nos.
Ginger-1/2 inch piece

Oil to make adais
1.Wash the beans and the urad dhall and soak for abt 2 hrs and then soak the rice along with it for another 2 hrs.
2.Grind the soaked mixture into a coarse batter along with the red and green chillies, ginger, asafoetida and salt adding the curry leaves towards the end.
3.The batter need not ferment unlike dosa batter and the adai can be made right away.
4.Heat a tawa or griddle and spread a ladle full of batter in circles to make the adai and make a small hole in the centre for it to cook well.
5.Apply half tsp of oil around the adai and in the center while it cooks.
6.Flip over and cook on both sides till golden brown in colour.
7.Serve hot with a dollop of butter, jaggery, mor kuzhambu, avial or milagai podi yennai.
