Adai is a crepe or pancake made with rice, a few varieties of dals(lentils),chillies and salt.It is rich in Protein and healthy.Some people have it for breakfast but we prefer to have it for dinner as it is a little heavy and filling.It tastes best when eaten hot and fresh.It is usually served with Avial because it has a lot of vegetables and is mild to taste. Since Adais are spicy, they are sometimes eaten with jaggery !!! It is a traditional recipe of Tamilnadu.
