Navadhanya Adai

5 from 4 votes

Crispy, healthy and mouth watering Adai loaded with protein and tempting flavours. I made this using Nine lentils and grains. But it can be made with any more or less number of lentils as you like.
If you want to make it for lunch box a slight alterations in ingredients will make it more soft than crispy which I have given in the recipe...

  • With the spatula make a hole in the centre and put some oil the centre and around the Adai. Preferably Gingelly / Sesame oil. Once it becomes golden brown flip off and cook the other side too.
  • Now the Adai is ready to serve. The best combo for Adai is Avial or Coconut Chutney. It also tastes yummy with butter and jaggery powder.


  • If you want it to be soft for a longer time reduce the quantity of Chana dal and add extra 1/4 cup of  Whole Black Urad dal.
  • When you make this filling  recipe for breakfast,  very simple lunch like curd rice and salads make us very comfortable.
