You all know that i have been using millets quite a lot now and i absolutely adore the flavour and taste of them. You can check out my recipes using millets here..The one sad thing is i am unable to find few more millets in my place. I have only jowar, thinai, kambu, ragi, barley,horsegram on hand. So you will be finding me using these millets again and again. You can check out my mom's tapioca adai, normal adai and my version of multigrain adai.
This is one recipe which i made a week back and i was so happy with the result. Because i didn't missed my normal adai dosa. It came out just perfect. And one more thing, after my successful attempt in this recipe, i used all the millets and made a millets adai today and it was a hit. Will share too soon..
The best pair with this adai is coconut chutney. This is so healthy to add it into your families breakfast. So try it out and let me know how it turned out..
