Vella Adai Recipe - Sweet adai recipe - Lentil Jaggery pancake - karthigai Vella Adai - karthigai deepem recipes

I love Adai especially if it is spicy and crispy. Vella adai is something new that I had at my friends place. It was so tasty . I like Jaggery based sweets esp. The next day, I had it with butter and it tasted so yum! It is definitely healthier than other calorie loaded sweets. With the addition of Lentil it is well balanced in nutrients. My jaggery was quite clean so I directly grinded it. If you suspect Impurity in your jaggery melt it and strain it before using it.
