Sweet Adai /Inippu Adai

Today is the final day for the Cooking Carnival in mega Blogging Marathon edition ans I like to end the series with a sweet note.
Coming to the recipe its a sweet adai which is often made in our households for quick neivedhyam for offering to god..So many variations can be made using wheat flour,maida,ragi flour and sometimes with semolina.
Today's version I used both wheat and all purpose flour along with rice flour.Since sweetener is used to make the batter this adai needs to be cooked in a medium flame,otherwise the color will turn dark.Here I used jaggery,even palm sugar and brown sugar can also be used.
