Paddu is a South Indian common breakfast dish. We use the same dosa batter to prepare it. We add onion and coriander leaves to the batter and make paddu in a paddu tava. Now a days the non stick tava is used and the paddu comes out very well. It is eaten with coconut chutney.
- 1 Cup urad dal
- 4 Cup Dosa rice
- 1 Cup Poha or puffed rice
- 2 Tbsp fenugreek seeds
- Salt as per taste
- Fresh Coriander leaves
- 1 Medium size onion finely chopped
- Oil as required
Soak the rice and urad dal in water for 6 to 8 hours. While grinding it use the fenugreek seeds, poha or puffed rice and grind it to a soft batter. Keep it closed for 4 to 5 hours.
Now take the required amount of batter add salt and also add coriander leaves and chopped onion and mix well. Apply oil to the paddu tava and keep on the heater and allow it to get heated. Once the tava is hot pour the batter in the holes of tava and add few drops of oil and close a lid and keep low flame. After 2 to 3 mins if the lower portion are cooked then turn it over and cook the other side. Now take it out and serve with chutney. Repeat the same process for the rest.
