Paruppu Masala Adai, a recipe from Tamil nadu

Ingredients needed for paruppu masala adai 
1/2 cup Tuar dal
1/2 cup channa Dal
1/2 cup Masoor Dal
1/2 cup Moong dal
1/2 cup Urad dal
2 cups idli rice
1 cup small onions
4-5 green chillies
4-5 red chillies
handful curry leaves
1/2 tsp asafoetida powder
Salt to taste

How to prepare masala adai:
Wash and soak all the dals and the rice together for about 3-4 hours. Grind to a coarse paste in the wet grinder or in the mixer.
Crush the small onions, green chillies , red chillies, curry leaves slightly , just one or two rounds in a mixer would do the trick.
Mix the crushed vegetables to the batter, with asafoetida and salt to taste. Leave it aside for about an hour.
Heat a Dosa tava, Pour ladleful of the batter onto the tava and spread evenly into a round slightly thicker than a dosa.
Pour gingelly / sesame oil on to the sides, As soon as one side gets fried flip it over and fry the other side.
When both the sides turn golden, serve hot with chutney.

This is a very healthy dish with all the dals and rice combination. You have to use oil for the Adai to taste good.
You can make the adais in the non stick tava but even then you will have to use oil but may be less than that of the ordinary iron tava
