Print Friendly and PDF

Adai Recipe:   Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
Adai  Dosa  is a filling, healthy and tasty Indian breakfast menu. It also makes for a nice evening tiffin that goes well with any chutney. 
In this recipe, I have added a handful of drumstick leaves to the lentil-rice batter,  to boost  the already nutritious version of Adai. This dosa can be prepared both thick or thin and my kids relished the crisp lentil dosa with coconut chutney & jaggery.
Check out this easy recipe to prepare hot & spicy Adai and enjoy..:)
