Lentil Dosa- Adai

My earliest memories of this dish were eating it in my grandma’s house. She would serve hot Adai’s crisp from the pan with a dollop of fresh home made butter. And we would hungrily devour it .When I started making it myself, I would flip at my recipe book to remember the number of dals that are required for this dish. I make this dish very often for breakfast and it’s very healthy and simple to make. Try making and eating it on a rainy day and enjoy while the crunch of this crisp dish keeps beat with the pitter-patter of the rain.
