Palak/ Spinach Adai

Adai is a healthy tiffin variety from South India. It is made by soaking and grinding some definite proportion of rice, lentils and chillies. Most of the South Indian tiffin varieties have a large proportion of rice that contributes to the bulk of carbs in vegetarian diet. Since adai has a large proportion of lentils, it is a healthier breakfast / dinner option. The best part of this tiffin variety is that it doesn’t require fermentation. Apart from the regular lentils, I have added some white and black kidney beans (karamani ) for better taste, crunchiness & nutrition. The addition of chopped palak /spinach leaves to the batter makes it a wholesome, flavourful, colourful and nutritious meal.
