Mixed Bean and Dhal Adai

Adai is a traditional breakfast  which is served along with coconut chutney or avial in South India.The original recipe of adai is with dhal and rice and you can check the recipe here.
But to make it more healthier and protein packed I made the adai with mixed bean and dhal,it came out super soft,delicious.This adai can be made with the 16 bean soup mix and we enjoyed it with coconut chutney and spicy tomato chutney.Now to the recipe................
