Heat the pan, then pour the batter with the spoon and spread it the way you spread the dosa..normally we tend to make dosa crisp and thin but in case of adai it should be little thick and roasted on both sides.
Serve it with coconut chutney , tomato chutney , green mint chutney, tamrind chutney . Some people eat with sugar and jaggery.
