KARADAIYAN NOMBU ADAI | SWEET AND SAVOURY VERSION.

Karadaiyan nombu adai
Post updated with new pictures - 2016
Karadaiyan nombu is celebrated in  Brahmin community  during the transition of Tamil Month Maasi and Panguni. We generally observe fast on that day and make the adai and offer as neivedyam to god along with butter. We make 2 versions of adai for this nombu. One is sweet adai and another one is kara adai. I have given the recipe for both karadaiyan nombu sweet adai and kara adai. Scrol down for both the recipes. Check out my sister's post on Karadaiyan nombu
 Karadaiyan Nombu 2016 is on 14th March .


Karadaiyan nombu sweet adai

  Preparation Time : 15 mins | Cooking Time : 25 Mins |Yields: 15 adais approx.

     Rice flour | Idiyappam flour   1 cup
     Water   2 and 1/2 cup (approx)
     Karamani| black eyed bean   2 tblsp
     Jaggery | vellam   1 cup
     Sesame oil   1 tsp
     Coconut (finely chopped)  1/4 cup
     Cardamom powder   2 pinches
     Ghee    few drops
     
     

nombu adai
Method

  • In a pan add the balck eyed beans|karamani and roast this for 2 minutes, without getting it burnt. Add 1 cup of water to this and cook it till the beans becomes soft. Even you can soak this for 10 minutes and cook. Karamani gets cooked soon. It cooked in around 10 minutes. Do not over cook. 
  • Drain the water and keep it aside.
nombu adai
  • In a pan add the jaggery and add 2 and 1/2 cup of water. Water quantity depends on the texture of the rice flour. So add 2 cups of water first and keep 1/2 cup of hot water separately. Later if needed will use it. 
  • Boil till the jaggery dissolves. Filter the impurities.
nombu adai 2
  • Add the chopped coconut, cooked karamani(black eyed beans) and elachi powder to the water and bring it to a rolling boil. 
nombu adai 3
  • Keep the flame low now and add the rice flour to this. Mix well without any lumps.
  • If you feel the mixture is getting dry, add little hot water to this. Cook till it comes to a whole mass and at the same time do not make it too dry. Else the adais will crack .
nombu adai 4
  • When it is warm ,grease your hand with ghee and take a lemon sized ball out of the dough. Make small patties. Put a hole in the center. 
nombu adai 5.1
  • Steam it in greased idli mould for 10-12 mins. The adais will be glossy once you take it out from the steamer. Allow this to cool for 2 minutes and then take it out. Else they will break. 
nombu adai 6.
  • Sweet adai is ready for neivedhyam, 
nombu adai recipe
     Notes:
  1. While making pinwheels if you feel it is breaking, just sprinkle some warm water to the jaggery dough mixture and make it.
  2. If the mixture is little watery(normally it wont come like that, just keep in a low flame and stir well for 3 minutes.
  3. Do not add the rice flour to the cooked dough while making the patties. 
  4. Always keep the dough covered while making the patties. Else it will become dry and crack.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Kara adai
Method:
  • In a pan add the balck eyed beans|karamani and roast this for 2 minutes, without getting it burnt. Add 1 cup of water to this and cook it till the beans becomes soft. Even you can soak this for 10 minutes and cook. Karamani gets cooked soon. It cooked in around 10 minutes. Do not over cook.

nombu adai

  • Chop the ginger,Green chilli and curry leaves finely.
  • In a pan, add 2 tsp of oil and throw in the mustard seeds, ginger, green chili  and curry leaves.
  • Add the water and let it boil for few minutes. Add 2 cups of water first and keep 1/2 cup of hot water ready, if needed we will use it later.
  • When it boils nicely add the karamani(black eyed beans) and coconut.  Add salt to this.
nombu adai 1
  • When the water starts boiling, keep the flame low and add the rice flour to this.
  • Mix well without lumps and cook till the water gets absorbed and it comes to a whole mass.
nombu adai 2
  • When it is warm make small balls and flatten it into patties and make small holes in the middle as we do for pinwheels.
nombu adai 3
  • Repeat this for the rest of the dough. 
  • Grease the idli mould and steam these savoury adai for 10-12 mins.
nombu adai 4
  • Savory adai is ready for neivedhyam. 
Nombu kara adai
Notes:
  1. For making this savoury adai also,if it breaks while you are making patties,just sprinkle some warm water and make it.
  2. In any case if you feel the flour mixture is watery do not add flour while making adais, as it is not cooked.
  3. If the mixture is loose, add it back to the pan and cook it for few more minutes. It will thicken.
  4. Do not make it too thick as it will make cracks in adai.
  5. Always keep the dough covered while making.

    1. Renu , i have tried with rice flour too, but i don't recommend since i am not satisfied with the texture of adai. It was little dry.
      U can make make ur own idiyappam flour at home( it is the eera arisi maavu we make ) i have given the link for how to make that eera arisi maavu also in the beginning of the post.

  41. Hi,

    I have a small doubt. Dont you need to dry roast the arisi mavu before it is added to the jaggery syrup?

    1. Hi akshara,
      No need to roast the rice flour(if using the idiyappam flour or home made rice flour) If you are using store bought rice flour,just roast in a kadai for 2 mins

  45. Looks yummy. Will make on the 14th. Have a doubt in the recipe for sweet adai. You have said
    When it is cooked strain the water and add it to the jaggery water. ( When what is cooked? Add what?)
    Because in the next line you say add the karamani.

    Please clarify. Thank you

  49. Hi Jayashri,

    Thanks for the recipes, I tried most of them and they came out very well. Great Posts!! There is one additional thing that I would really like to mention regarding the Karadayar Nonbu Recipe, i.e, you could slightly roast the Karamanis in those Adais in-order to get good aroma before boiling them. Thanks. On the way to make "Coriander Chutney"!! Have a good day! :)
