How to make Maravalli Kizhangu / Tapioca Adai?
Wash the rice and dal well and add the red chillies to them.
Soak in water for 3 hours.
Remove the skin of the Tapioca and cut them to small pieces and put them in water.
Drain the water from the soaked items.
Add the soaked rice, dal, red chillies, salt and the tapioca in a blender jar and grind to thick batter slightly coarser than regular dosa batter.
This batter gets fermented very fastly.
So just two hours of resting time is enough.
Add hing powder and loads of curry leaves.
Add some water to bring into pouring consistency.
Heat a dosa tawa and grease it with oil.
Pour a ladle of batter and make dosas.
Sprinkle some oil on and around the adai.
Cook on both sides and serve hot with coconut chutney.
