Adai is a rice based South Indian Pancake which is had on certain occasions like on festivals or offering prayers for a particular God.Adai is normally made of lentils – either one specific or a mixture of lentils.But this Adai is made of only Sela Rice which is also called “boiled rice” or “puzung arsi” in Tamil.Moringa or Drumstick Leaves are added which are called "Saijan ke patte" in Hindi.
