Lentil Crepes With Methi Leaves

I adapted this recipe from Anudivya's Lentil Crepes. I made some changes in the ingredients which I loved.


  • Mung Daal: 1 Cup
  • Channa Daal: 1/4 Cup
  • Green Peas Daal: 1/4 Cup
  • Urad Daal: 1/2 Cup
  • Tur Daal: 1/4 Cup
  • Finely Chopped Methi Leaves: 1 Cup
  • Green Chillies, Ginger and Garlic Paste to Taste
  • Dry Peanut Chutney
  • Curry Leaves: 4-5
  • Finely Chopped Coriander
  • Turmeric Powder
  • Salt to Taste


  1. Wash & soak all daals and curry leaves for atleast 7-8 hrs or overnight.
  2. Grind all daals with some curry leaves, salt, turmeric and green chillies, ginger and garlic paste. Add water as required and make a smooth paste.
  3. Then add chopped methi leaves and coriander leaves and mix well.
  4. Heat one non stick griddle. Pour a small ladle of batter in the center, and spread out in circular motion till you get a thin layer. Sprikle some dry peanut chutney and drizzle some oil.
  5. Cook crepes till it starts become brown then remove from griddle.
  6. Serve these crepes with any chutney or sauce or potato sabji.

Healthy crepes, would have tasted delicious na!! loved the addition of methi leaves.. crispy crepes looks delicious..

Trupti, this looks great. As a tradition we do add drumstick leaves to the batter and then form crepes. We like it a lot.
Since we dont get those here, methi would be a lovely addition!

I am glad you liked it... and did you add rice to it in any form at all? Or did I miss it?

Trupti, glad you liked the sambhar for your winter event. I will link first and send it to you. I don't know the size of the photo you would like but you can cut it down to size later.

Methi Adai looks gorgeous, great with mixed veg sambhar too on the side! :))
