Yesterday morning when I opened the refrigerator to check if there was anything worth cooking,a bowl of adai batter made itself present.The batter would just make 3-4 adais and it would not be sufficient for us.I checked the boxes in the pantry and was rewarded to find 1/4 packed of ragi flour.I put these two together and wanted to improve the taste.

Just as I was thinking,I saw the drumstick tree in the backyard from the kitchen window.The drumstick tree branches swayed gracefully and looked like it was calling out to me.I picked out a handful of leaves and dropped it into the batter and added a little of mint and coriander.Lo and behold,a tasty and healthy breakfast was ready!!!

I used :

Leftover adai batter
Ragi flour
Drumstick leaves
Mint leaves
Coriander leaves
Cumin seeds
Finely chopped onions

I used 4:1[adai batter – ragi flour] ratio.You can use according to your taste/the quality of the ragi flour. Similarly adjust the quantity of onion,herbs.

  1. Mix all the ingredients to make a batter without lumps.
  2. Heat a griddle and pour a ladleful of batter in the centre and spread it.It may not come out as a perfect circle as we have added onion and herbs.Drizzle oil if needed and cover and cook till the edges leave the pan.
  3. Flip it over and cook again for 2 minutes.
  4. Remove from griddle and serve piping hot with a side dish of your choice.

Bon Appetit…
