Note: The recipe of this Grandma's Parippu Ada, which is a type of dosa was followed/ initially by my grandmom (hence, the name Grandma's Ada Dosa). Following her my mom always made ada dosa using this same recipe. So, obviously the recipe contributor here is my mom. It is also very healthy and scrumptious.

To start with, you have to wash and soak rice with urad dal together and toor dal separately. After 2-3 hrs, first grind all the ingredients to a coarse consistency. Make sure that you don't make a smooth batter out of it. It should be of slightly coarse consistency.

Meanwhile, you should soak the red chillies and add this to the rice while grinding it, as well. After sometime, crush the shallots and curry leaves. Then add these to the batter. This will definitely enhance the taste of the ada. Finally, add in asafoetida powder and salt to taste. Then, mix it well. Also, make sure that the batter is slightly thick. However, it should not ferment.

3

Heat the dosa tava on the pan and spread the batter to a thick dosa. Pour 1 to 2 tbsp oil and cook the ada on both the sides. This Grandma's Parippu Ada dosa comes out best when you add more oil to it. However, if you are conscious about your health, you can also lessen the amount used. This is perfect for breakfast.

Instead of using asafoetida powder, you can also use the asafoetida block. If so, then you should soak it along with the red chillies and grind it along with the batter.
