Multigrain Adai Recipe – Paruppu Adai – Healthy Tiffin

Multigrain Adai – Healthy breakfast / Dinner – Paruppu Adai

Hi folks,

Multigrain Adai is a non-fermented, seasoned dosa-variety prepared from the batter made of rice and five variety of legumes. This multigrain adai is a healthy alternative for dinner or breakfast, especially when you run out of dosa batter. I never tried this dish until my friend prepared it for dinner on a get-together recently. It was so tastier than the traditional adai that we prepare using Rice and Toor dhal which made me prepare this tasty adai the very next day; And now it is here for you. 🙂

  1. Serve it hot or warm with Aviyal (the best match for your Adai), ghee, butter or chutney of your choice.


  1. You can make your adai immediately after you prepare the batter, but I recommend to let the batter sit at room temperature for 3 hours before consuming.

  2. Seasoning the batter is totally optional. Skip it, if you want and just add chopped cilantro.
