Adai is a very famous kind of dosa in south India.I love this with aviyal.It is really a perfect combination and tastes yummy.Give it a try!

Raw Rice----------------2 cups
Urad Dhal---------------1/2 cup
Moong Dhal--------------1/2 cup
Toor Dhal---------------1 cup
Chana Dhal--------------1/2 cup
Red Chili---------------4 or 5
Green Chili-------------1 (lengthy)
Curry leaves

Soak the rice and the dhals for an hour and then while grinding add the chilis and curry leaves with less water.The dough should not be so soft,it should be little rough.Before making the dosa add salt and mix it thoroughly.
