Crispy Adai

I can eat Dosa all days, any time of the time and everyday. I can write a book on my passion and experience with Dosa. Amma tries out many varieties of Dosa, especially for me. And my all time favorite dosa variety is Adai. The thin crispy Adai with tempting Coconut chutney is just out of the world. Unfortunately my hubby dear and Dad don’t prefer this much. So we make it whenever they don’t have food at home. Yesterday, I made Adai for dinner and convinced hubby dear that its not Adai but Dosa made from combi of pulses. He saw and said I cheated him, still after eating it said it was very tasty.

Here you go for the adorable Adai

  1. Don’t tell me you like Dosas too, I think I will die without them on my plate. So, I have dosa batter every day in my refrigerator and my hubby hates it like anything. I made adai only twice so far, I liked it though.

  2. Thanks Padmaja it tastes great also…do try when you get time.

    Seema glad to know another dosa lover…

  3. jake, Welcome to my blog. Thank you. 3 hours of soaking is just enough and it need not ferment once its ground. You can just go ahead preparing the adai. Tell and let me know.
