I just modified amma's adai recipe and tried this one replacing rice with varagu and thinai, it came out so good even tastier than our usual adai...no one can actually find the difference that you have made adai with millets.This is another recipe that you can easily include millets in your diet, very healthy. I love to have it with coconut chutney and sugar, even jaggery goes well.
