Mini Adai is a yummy snack which my first Sambandhi used to make with Raw rice kurunai(Rice Rawa). This is similar to Thavala Adai  but with some minor variation. Very cripsy and crunchy and a delicious snack for a nice evening. It is a little time consuming dish but the taste is wonderful. Instead of usual upma, this is a nice alternative to surprise the kids.

Method:
  1. Take the raw rice, thurdal and pepper in a mixer 

  2. Grind all of them to a coarse powder like a rawa. The  powder should not be so smooth. Take this aside in a bowl.

  6. The adai mixture will become thick and doesn't stick to the pan



  • Allow the mixture to cool off. Heat another pan or tawa, add a teaspoon of oil. Take one lemon size ball of adai mixture and pat it in the midde to form a patti and add it to the tawa/pan. Add 5-6 adai and keep the flame medium and add 2 more teaspoon of oil. Close the tawa/pan with a lid and allow the adai to shallow fry on one side Using a spoon or fork, gently turn it to other side and allow it to shallow fry on the other side







  • When both the sides of adai turn to golden brown color and they become crispy, remove each one from the flame and place it in a paper towel. Repeat the steps for the rest of adai mixture







  • The crispy and scrumptious Mini Adai are ready to serve. Serve them with Coconut chutney or green chutney.
