Mixed dal-Millet adai | Protein packed breakfast

Mixed dal Adai with step by step pictures. 

Adai is rice- dal mix savory pancake. Here in addition to dal & rice I have also used a millet (Samai) to make it more healthy. Adai doesn't require any fermentation. You can make it right after grinding the batter just a resting time of 10-15minutes. Since this recipe is so heavy with dal& rice you will feel full with just one adai. Here I have used little millet but you can use other millet varieties also.
