Adai Dosa - Mixed Lentil pancakes

Adai Dosa
 A usual healthy breakfast made in most of our homes.  Normally Adai is served with Aviyal in hotels, which actually i have not tasted yet. We used to have adai with coconut chutney and i find it to be a good combo. Normally i don't use to follow any measurements with the dal for adai and will just add a variety of dal with rice and urud .
To blog it here i have followed some measurements but still you can mix and match the dals with no compromise on taste.  To enhance the taste, lot of onions and coriander can be added.  Adai dosa's are usually thick but i like it to have nor too thick nor too thin , more like the dosa. It does not require any fermentation and can be grinded using mixer.
