Please check my following recipes :

Drumstick leaves - 2 cups, washed, cleaned and tightly packed
Raw rice - 1/2 cup
Boiled or idli rice - 1/2 cup
Tur dhal - 1/2 cup
Channa dhal - 1/8 cup
Urad dhal - 1/8 cup
Ginger - a small piece
Green chillies - 2
Red chillies - 2
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Enough oil to make the adais

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/dinner/tiffin
Soaking time: 2 hrs; Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: Roughly 4-5 mts for each adai

Yields roughly 6-8 adais

All the ingredients above mentioned, the rice and the dhals soaked in water for a couple of hours

Drained well, and loaded in the blender jar along with green and red chillies, hing powder, ginger and salt to taste

and ground to a coarse batter

Drumstick leaves, cleaned, washed and drained

added to the batter

A ladle of batter poured on a hot tava, spread like dosa, oil drizzled around and cooked on medium flames. Because it takes quite some time to cook these lentil crepes, and once again I insist on Shraddha and Saburi (Perseverance and patience)

Flipped over, drizzle 1/4 tsp oil again, flames on the lowest now

Mini moringa adais , very tasty, crisp outside, soft inside, can be made too!!

Serve with jaggery and ghee and molagappodi

* 1/8 cup Moong dhal can also be added
*Regular ada without moringa leaves can also be made
*2 tbsps of fresh grated coconut can be added to the batter.
