Adai is a very popular snack in parts of South India, where it is served as Breakfast or as supper. Traditionally, this dosa-like snack is made with a batter of rice and lentils, flavoured with chillies, pepper and other ingredients.

In this diabetic-friendly variant, we have substituted rice with broken wheat, which not only matches up to the original in terms of flavour but also gives a unique texture that is absolutely delectable.

Diabetics can have two Adais for Breakfast , to meet their nutrient requirements.

Adai.. my favourite.. and a perfect breakfast to start your day.. I found this recipe very healthy.. As Adai is mostly made with rice.. but in this recipe it is replaced by broken wheat.. just too good..
