Thinai Adai / foxtail millet Adai

Adai is a healthy tiffin made out of mixed pulses. We can make Adai in all the combinations we want. There is no specific recipe for this particular dish. We can keep changing every time we grind or mix it. We can make it with or without rice, we can change the pulses. We can also add veggies on Adai. I love to murungakeerai to the Adai. It's healthy as well as tasty to eat with anything. Today made Adai using Thinai. It was very crispy and tasty. Do try this out.
