This dish is mostly prepared on “Karthigai Deepam Day” and hence it is also called as “Karthigai Adai”. This can be served with Vellam and Vennai (Jaggery and Butter). For spicy taste, serve with Idli Milagai Podi.
Milagu adai is a traditional South Indian snack or breakfast/dinner dish made with a combination of lentils, rice, and black pepper. The batter for adai is prepared by grinding soaked lentils, rice, and black pepper together, along with other ingredients like coconut, cumin, etc. This batter is then spread on a hot griddle or tawa to make crispy and flavorful adais. They are typically served with Jaggery and butter. Milagu adai is not only delicious but also nutritious due to the high protein content from lentils and the aromatic flavors of black pepper.
