Adai is made from rice-lentil batter. We use Bengal gram (Channa dahl), yellow split peas (Tuvar dahl) and rice in this preparation. I have replaced white rice with brown rice on some days. Even wild rice or Jasmine rice can also be used. Adai is typically served with aviyal (assorted vegetables cooked with coconut and other spices) or butter, jaggery or a chutney or simple spice podi.
