This multi lentil adai is superbly healthy and loaded with goodness of flax and a twist in the tale by adding avocado filling and onions to add to the crunch. Better than any cheesy pizza. A far healthier option than any high carbs breakfast list.

One of the most nutritious dosas you could ever ask for is the Adai.

Also, this adai batter does not need any fermentation and hence all you need is an overnight soaking. Use the leftover options from your refrigerator like kidney beans, salad, lettuce etc. and savor with freshly made coconut chutney.
