      Right from the pages of Tamil Sangam literature dating as far back as 1st Century AD, this Protein Rich Adai Recipe offers a healthier choice to the traditional dosa with its multigrain goodness. A simple dish that is extremely popular in South Indian households, the ingredients are easily available and it should take you just over half an hour to prepare Protein Rich Adai at Home. In the ‘Silapp ... atikaram’ which is believed to be the earliest epic in the Tamil language written over two thousand years ago. The author describes street vendors at beaches selling crispy adais to passers-by. The main ingredients of this Protein Rich Adai are the protein-packed toor dal and chana dal which are ground with rice to make the adai batter. One of the Protein Rich Adai Benefits is that it can be made by throwing other pulses like urad dal or kulath dal into the mix as well, although these are not used in this Protein Rich Adai Recipe. To give it a modern twist, you can also use the adai as a base and add tomatoes, onions, olives or any preferred topping and then roll it up for a tasty snack. The best part of the dish is that you can eat it with a number of different sides like honey, jaggery, chutney or even curd and this makes for an ideal and nutritious breakfast for people of all ages.
