Adai, an all-time favourite south indian snack that comprises a mix of different dals with rice, this recipe elevates the protein content of your meal to great heights! dals are good and inexpensive sources of protein. Cereals and pulses lack an amino acid each; hence, the combination of rice and dals improves the protein quality of this dish.

- Combine the rice paste and dal paste in a bowl, add the coconut, carrots, cabbage, onions, curry leaves, green chillies and salt to the batter and mix well. Add a little water to make a thick batter.
