Quinoa & Mixed Dals Adai

I tried out recently this quinoa, mixed beans and mixed dal Adai for our dinner, this crispy adai tastes awesome with a beautiful golden brown colour tastes awesome when served with any sort of spicy chutney, this adai is definitely a protein packed dish also its one of the best and better way to sneak quinoa, most of us know very well about the nutritional value of this tiny grains and i started making delicious dishes from this grain only after starting this blog, yep i learned many new things through this blogsphere and quinoa is one among those..This adai batter doesnt need to ferment and can stay prefect for two to three days if this batter arranged in fridge...Sending to CWF-Quinoa guest hosted by Priya Mitharwal..
