Paruppu Adai/ Mixed Lentils Pancake

14:51 Niloufer Riyaz 12 Comments

Paruppu Adai is surely an all time fav, I feel as though Ive had my days nutrients from one adai especiallly served with Avial. There are many recipes for ,making adai n this is very easy to ,make, you can try out any combination of lentils. Here Ive added  rice for crispiness n masoor dal vor a vareity. This adai was delicious n went perfect with Spicy coconot chutney. The secret for the perfect adai is grinding them coarsely. Adding onions is a must as it adds an extra taste to the adai. Next time I plan to use a different set of Lentils to make this Adai.
