Adai dosa is one of my favourite breakfast/lunch/dinner. It is a mixture of rice and variety of lentils. It is a healthier dosa than the regular dosa. You can add any type of lentils that you have in your pantry. Another reason why this dosa is so popular because it is very easy to make and need no planning and no fermentation.

Try this dosa for your family and leave a feedback if you like or have any questions.
