Maravalli kizhangu adai recipe, Tapioca adai

Tapioca adai/ Maravalli kizhangu adai is a protein rich breakfast/ tiffin prepared by grinding rice and dal to which ground tapioca is mixed and made into thick dosa/ adai. Adai is usually served with aviyal/ sambar/ chutney and is one such tummy filling, wholesome and healthy breakfast popular in South India. I have posted earlier an interesting recipe like this quinoa adai.

Adai is traditionally prepared with rice and lentils only and this maravalli kizhangu adai/ Tapioca adai is a slight variation to it, by adding tapioca paste which enhances the taste and health benefits of this adai. I am a great fan of tapioca/ maravalli kizhangu dishes and I have been making a lot of interesting dishes with it for quite some time but somehow miss to post it. I am really glad I finally posted this recipe and hope to post all those tapioca recipes soon.

Adai batter usually requires no fermentation/ rest time like regular idli/ dosa batter but I kept it aside for 2 to 3 hours because of that rest time the batter will be slightly fermented and will yield in yummy and soft adai. But this step is optional. Also for this recipe I used frozen taioca/ cassava because frozen ones are only available here but if you are making this adai with fresh tapioca/ maravalli kizhangu first peel the skin, wash it thoroughly to get rid of any sand and then chop it carefully. So let’s get to the making!

When both sides look cooked transfer it a plate. Serve hot with aviyal, mint chutney or puli kuzhambu! Repeat the process till all the batter is over, leftover batter can be refrigerated and used as dinner or breakfast.
