Adai Recipe - How to make Adai | Breakfast Recipes

Adai Recipe
I can have adai(adai dosa) even daily....I love it so much. This version amma makes - the dosa style is my fav not to thick not too thin. Most restaurants serve adai with aviyal but I havent tasted that combination. To me adai with coconut chutney is the best combo and with little sugar....hmmm heavenly! It is protein packed wholesome for breakfast/dinner.

Want a more healthy version of adai?! then check out the oats adai.

Serve hot with coconut chutney or avial. Adai Dosa

My Notes:

  • If you want a more spicy version add 2 more red chillies while grinding.
  • Grind it coarsely not too smooth.Once the batter is ready you can make your adais right away. We usually grind it noon to make it for dinner and keep the extra remaining batter till next day morning(keeping it refrigerated)
  • You can also spread the batter even more thicker. We prefer this way to get crispy dosa style adais.
  • You can also include a small piece of ginger while grinding.
