How to Make Dhummadai

Here are the steps for preparing Dhum Adai, a South Indian traditional tart:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 180°C (356°F) for about 10 minutes. This ensures that your oven is ready for baking when your Dhum Adai mixture is prepared.
  2. Soak Semolina in Milk: In a bowl, combine 3 cups of semolina with 3 cups of thick milk. Allow the semolina to soak in the milk for at least 2 hours. This soaking process helps to soften the semolina and infuse it with the rich flavor of milk.
  3. Add Eggs and Mix: After 2 hours of soaking, add 3 eggs to the semolina and milk mixture. Mix well to incorporate the eggs into the mixture. Close the lid and let it soak for an additional 2 hours.
  4. Add Sugar and Cardamom: Once the soaking process is complete, add 3 cups of powdered sugar to the mixture. Crush 6-7 cardamom pods and add the seeds to the mixture as well. Mix everything thoroughly to ensure that the sugar and cardamom are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  5. Incorporate Ghee: Add 1/2 cup of ghee to the soaked milk and semolina mixture. Mix well with a spatula to ensure that there are no lumps in the batter. The ghee adds richness and flavor to the Dhum Adai mixture.
  6. Grease Tart Moulds: Grease your egg tart moulds with some ghee and sprinkle them with a little bit of all-purpose flour. This prevents the Dhum Adai from sticking to the moulds during baking and helps to achieve a crispy exterior.
  7. Pour Batter into Moulds: Pour the Dhum Adai batter into the greased tart moulds, filling them almost to the top. Use a spatula to smooth out the surface of the batter and ensure that it is evenly distributed in the moulds.
  8. Sprinkle with Nuts: Sprinkle your choice of almonds, cashews, and pistachios on top of the Dhum Adai batter in the moulds. This adds a crunchy texture and enhances the visual appeal of the tarts.
  9. Bake: Place the filled tart moulds in the preheated oven and bake at 180°C (356°F) for approximately 25 minutes, or until the Dhum Adai tarts are golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Cool and Serve: Once baked, remove the Dhum Adai tarts from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy the delicious South Indian flavors of your freshly baked Dhum Adai tarts!
