Coriander - chopped ¼ cup

Soak the rice and all dals separately in two different vessels for 5 hours.Soak the redchillies also.
Grind redchilles,ginger along with dals and rice into a coarse paste.It should be thick than the dosa batter.Add sufficient water to change the consistency. Add Seasoning (mustard seeds,urad dal ,Red chilles,curry leaves,chopped onions) ,salt ,chopped coriander leaves stir well into the batter.Start making adais after 1 hr .Since the seasoning is soaked in the batter it gives more taste.
Heat non stick pan and add a little bit oil to the pan.
Pour a laddle full of batter and spread in a circular motion from inside to outside.Drizzle little bit oil on both sides and roast for golden brown color.
Serve hot with any chutney.

How good will Chopped onions be as seasoning for adai? And you are adding red chillies both to make batter and seasoning, Can you specify the count precisely for both? Will not adding 15 red chillies make the batter very spicy?
