Mixed Millets Adai - Varagu Thinai Adai - Healthy Tiffin Recipe

Adai is one of my favorite breakfast recipe, which my mother makes weekly once because it is high in protein and iron. Adai is a combination of rice and 3 types of dals such as moong dal, channa dal and toor dal. Thus you get the health benefits of all the four dals. This is a good tiffin recipe for pregnant women, growing children and also for the all the age group people. Here I have used millets instead of rice to make it more healthier.Try this recipe and serve this to your loved ones. Thinai is Foxtail Millet and Varagu is Kodo Millet. You can also use other types of millets like Barnyard millet, etc.
