Brown Rice Adai

Do you like Adai?? My answer is a BIG yes!!! I love it so much and can eat it everyday.. It is so rich in proteins with so many dals and lentils in it... But this has equal amount of rice in it and today I tried to substitute the rice with Brown rice and the result was a even more crispier and tastier adai!! Starting this month’s marathon with this guilt free adai!!
