After long time I made Adai for Dinner. Adai is a crispy South Indian recipe. Adai is packed with protein and makes an excellent snack, school-lunch and an equally good as it has all dals.
• 1 Cup Channa Dal
• 1 Cup Tuvar Dal
• 1 Cup Urad Dal
• 1 Cup Moong Dal
• 1 Cup Rice
• ½ Cup Grated Coconut(Optional)
• 2 Green Chilies (add more if you want more spicy)
• 1" Ginger(add more if you want more gingery taste)
• Salt to Taste
• ½ Cup Chopped Coriander
• 8 Curry Leaves(optional)
• Oil Method:
 • Soak dals and rice together for 2 hours.
• Grind rice,dals,chilles,curry leaves,coconut,Cilantro,salt and ginger together.
• Heat griddle and pour some batter and spread in a circular motion.
• Spread one spoon of oil around the dosa and cook both sides.

Serve with Coconut chutney and Sambar.
For a change I served with Rasam.

I made Adai medium thick and very thin like paper dosa.

My daughter liked it so much she wanted one adai with tomato on the top like uttapam and she asked again for the school lunch.
