Adai Recipe – Adai Dosa probably amongst the healthiest of all the Dosa recipes out there.

It is high in a variety of nutrients but a blast of proteins comes from the Dals that are used along with the Rice (Toor Dal, Chana Dal and Mung Dal).

Unlike the plain Dosa, Adai doesnt require fermentation. Instead the Dals are soaked for some time in water. After that the batter is mixed with the spices to make into wonderful little Dosas.

Adai Dosa and Chutney

In my home, Adai Dosa was always made thick (perhaps two times as much batter compared to a normal Dosa, maybe even more). This makes the Adai heavy and filling at the same time.

Adai was served to us with either small pieces of Jaggery, different types of Chutney or even Tomato Ketchup.

To enhance the flavor, smear the top of the Adai with good serving of Ghee.
