Wheat Rava Adai/ Broken Wheat Adai

Today I share Wheat Rawa Adai from south region under regional category. Generally wheat rawa is known as broken wheat or daliya. It is a good source of iron, magnesium, fiber and phosphorus. It’s a very valuable and healthy meal for people who are concerned about heart and health both. Broken wheat can be stored in airtight jar in cool and dry place for future use.

Commonly I used broken wheat to prepare boiled daliya, vegetable daliya, daliya upma, lapsi but adai or dosa is really very new to me. Personally I have less idea about South Indian flavors, so I adopt this recipe from Kamla’s Corner. First I have little confusion about wheat rava, means wheat rava is daliya or semolina. But thanks to Kamla who tell me about wheat rawa is same as daliya or broken wheat. You can serve this adai recipe with green chutney or coconut chutney.
