Finely chop onion, cabbage and coriander leaves. Wash, peel the skin and grate carrot. Keep it aside. Peel and finely chop ginger.
Soak cracked wheat for 5 hours in 1 1/2 cups of water.
Wash and soak all the dals (tur dal (tuvaram paruppu), chana dal (kadalai paruppu), urad dal (ulutham paurppu) together for 4 hours.
Grind the dal together with red chillies, cumin, ginger, hing and salt needed. Remove it in a bowl and keep it aside. Grind soaked dalia just for a few seconds.
Mix dalia and dal batter together to get adai batter consistency.
The batter should neither be too thick nor thin. So you can adjust it by adding water accordingly. Add water only if necessary. No fermentation required.
Now add all the vegetables, curry leaves, coriander leaves to the batter and mix well. You can add even finely chopped capsicum, grated coconut, grated beetroot etc.
Heat a tawa and pour a ladle of batter in the center of the tawa and spread it using the back of the ladle in a circle.
Make 3-4 holes in the adai using a spoon. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the adai and inside the holes.
Cook covered on medium heat. Once the corners start lifting up, flip it over to the other side, drizzle another 1/2 tsp of oil and cook until done.
Remove from heat and serve hot with any chutney of your choice. Even idli podi with sesame seed oil, butter, cream (malai) and jaggery goes well with adai.
Storage - You can store the plain batter for a day in the refrigerator. So add vegetables only to needed batter. You can also grind the previous day, refrigerate it and make adai for breakfast the next day.
