Preparation of Adai:

  1. Heat a tava in a medium flame. Once it is heated, pour batter with a cup shaped spatula and spread it to form a round shape.
  2. Pour little oil around that and cook for 2 mins. Then turn to the other side and cook for another 2 mins.  Cook well till it turns to light brown colour. Follow the same procedure for the rest.

Have it with Jaggery, milagai podi or butter. But Avial is the famous combination of all.

Additional Info:

Some grind the dhals lightly and add it with the rice batter. But for kids and old people, it is difficult to digest. If you grind well, then it is suitable for all ages.

You can also add green chillies to the batter.
