Multi lentil adai or dosa.

I have used 12 varieties of lentils to make this adai or dosai. This power packed adai is very easy to make and high in protein and fiber. I have added some spices and little millet also to make it more tasty. There is no need of fermentation to make this adai. If we want thicker adai dosa we have to make the batter little thicker. If we like thin crispy version add some more water and make like a normal dosa batter consistency.  We can have this adai with coconut chutney, kothsu or jaggery. You can refer my blog for kothsu recipe.

If you want to avoid oil you can make Idly also with the same batter adding little eno salt. Then make like normal Idlies. Let us see how to make this power packed adai or dosa.
