  • Heat a flat pan or tawa on  a medium flame. Pour two ladles of batter and form a thick round circle.  Make a small hole in the middle and drizzle little oil in it.  Pour little  oil around the adai and cook for sometime until golden brown.  Turn and cook on the other side, pouring another teaspoon of oil around it.  Once both the sides are cooked well, remove from the tawa and serve hot with avial or jaggery or butter.
