    Hi ladies,

    Here let us see how we have to prepare the flour for 'Nonbu Adai'.

    You can use this flour for sweet and kara adai.

    Take raw rice, wash well and soak it in water for 10- 15 mts.

    Drain well and spread on a cloth. Just under fan not under sun.

    When it is fairly dry, powder in the mixi.

    The flour should be very fine.

    Put a dry pan on the stove and roast it. Stir continuously.

    Take a pinch of the flour and try to put a line on the 'kitchen medai' itself.

    If you are able to put a line like 'kolam', your 'mavu' is ready.

    Now remove the pan form the fire and transfer it to a 'big plate' / 'tambalam'.

    Allow it to cool and then sieve.

    Take and measure the fine flour.

    Normally for every cup of flour, you can add 1 3/4 cup to 2 cups of water.

    But If you want to use 'dry flour' which we buy from the shop, you have to add more water.

    Let us make the 'karamani' also ready. Take 'karamani', and put it in the pan. Dry fry till you get good aroma.

    Put it in a cup of water and cook well in a cooker with a pinch of salt.

    Now the flour and karamani is ready to make adai.

    Sweet adai

    Ingredients:

    Roasted flour - 1 cup
    Cooked karamani - 2 tbsp
    Jaggery powdered - 1 cup
    Finely chopped coconut or grated coconut - 2 tbsp
    Cardamom powder - ½ tsp
    One pinch salt

    Method:

    Boil water and add jaggery. Allow it to dissolve and drain it.
    Now bring it to a boil, make the flame sim.
    Add coconut, cardamom powder and karamani.
    Mix well. Now add rice flour.
    MIx well. If you want you can add 1 sp ghee in it.
    This will give good aroma for the adai.
    If you want you can add some more water.
    Just add water with the use of spoon.
    So that you will not add more water in the dough.
    Remove from the fire and keep aside.
    Let is cool, then knead well like chappati dough.
    Make small adai out of the dough.

    In our house we make like 'pidi kozhukatai' , for 'naivadiem.'
    That is first we used to make 'naivadiem' for god, correct? at that time we use this 'kozhukatai adai' ;each of us will have 2.
    so if you also do like that, then make some 'pidi lozhukatai' type adai according to the number of ladies in the house. ok?

    Steam it like idly.
    Serve with plain butter.

    Note:If the 'jaggery' is high, the adai will become sticky. so put less jaggery so that it will taste grate.
