I tried replacing rice with varagu (Kodo millet) and tried the regular adai recipe with slight modifications. It turned out great. I am trying out recipes to include millets in day to day recipes and I really liked this one. Spicy, flavorful, with lentils to add on. You can use the same recipe and make paniyarams as well. To see how varagu looks like, check out my varagu kanji post. Millets AKA siru dhaniyam can be easily consumed as we can replace certain millets in place of rice and get the benefits.
- Poha, urad dal and moong dal makes the adai soft.
- Standing time gives softer adais, otherwise, adai will be had.
- Add water carefully, otherwise the adai batter may become watery.
Serve hot with avial or even powdered jaggery or Naatu sakkarai.
