A savory pancake made with rice and lentil
Adai is a very popular and healthy South Indian breakfast item. Adai is made with rice and a mix of 3-4 lentils. Though the proportion of lentils differs according to each family and region but the lentils used are mainly urad daal ,tuvar daal, moong daal and chana daal.The rice and lentils are soaked for 3-4 hours and then ground coarsely
Adai can be thick like uttapam or like a medium thick dosa, again the thickness depends on your preference.My daughter like to have it like dosa so make it how crisp you want to have.To make it more healthy you can also add grated carrots, cabbage, spinach , peas etc according to your choice .It is a very good recipe for kids tiffin box. It is very simple to make and does not require too much fermenting time like dosa, you can either ferment it for 3-4 hours or can make it instantly.
