Kids Special - Kizhanghu Adai

My DD is bored of same Chappatti, Idli, Rice, Kothumai Dosai, Pasta in the last of couple of weeks. So I decided to make this Kizhangu adai for her, but less spicy. Idea bulb suddenly instructed me to use Peppercorns & Jeera instead of Red ChilliesJ hmm , y don't I try it?

ParBoiled/Idly Rice ------> 1.5 Cups, Soaked
Yucca Root -----------------> 1.5 Cups, Chopped (Maravalli Kizhangu)
Peppercons ----------------> 1.5 tsp
Jeera -------------------------> 1.5 tsp
Salt ---------------------------> A2Y taste
Hing --------------------------> ½  tsp 
·         Wash & Soak the rice for couple of hours
·         Remove the hard, brown skin of Yucca Root using Peeler; chop into small chunks
·         Grind everything to make fine, smooth batter; add water while grinding, but don't make it too watery.
·         Make little adais in dosa pans. My DD likes Mickey Mouse Adai :-)
·         Serve it with Ghee & Sugar

Idea bulb didn't fail me. Adai was really yummy & Chewy because of Yucca root's texture. She also loved it, so I sent little adais for lunch.  Peppercorns & Jeera enhanced the taste & aroma.
Yucca is high in vitamins A, B, and C, and contains potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, manganese and copper which make it very soothing to the intestinal tract.  Peppercorns & Jeera helps in easy digestion, Cold, Cough. So definitely this adai will be a good choice for the kids.

ü  Other healthier options of including grains like Wheat, Barley(high in fiber), Rye, Oats, Millet; Just powder them fine in the blender and add it directly to the batter.
ü  Grinding Yucca root with any of the other beans/lentils mentioned in Multigrain/Sprouted Beans Adai can also be another option
ü  Shredded Carrots or Cabbage as toppings
