 Adai is a multi-lentil crepe, slightly crispy, light and a stomach filling breakfast dish. It is generally made with four healthy lentils that includes channa dal, moong dal, tur dal and urad dal. This is spiced with red chillies, fresh peppercorns and flavored with ginger pieces. Ginger pieces are often added as it aids in proper digestion and keeps the stomach light. Ginger also gives a nice warmth and spicy flavor to the adai.

Adai as whole is a high protein dish that goes well with milagai podi and ghee. At times, it is also with jaggery or white butter. Curry leaves being the main flavoring ingredients adds an amazing earthy flavor to the dish. It also gives a refreshing aroma and taste to the crepe. Curry leaf is the vital ingredient in most Indian curries especially in southern India. Do try this brilliant dish as it has an awesome aroma lingering around while preparing the dish.
