Sorakkai Adai - Sorakaya Adai - Bottle Gourd Adai

Sorakkai adai is a healthy & tasty adai made with lentils & some spices, with grated Sorakkai as Topping. lentils are packed with rich protein & fibre content. Bottle Gourd  contains many vitamins and minerals, such as, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, Vitamin A, C and folate. so it is a healthy adai recipe. Spicy adai with mild taste of sorakkai as topping make the adai yummy. I learnt this recipe from my neighbour Hastalatha.
