Sorghum Adai / Jowar Adai / Chola Adai Recipe

Chola Adai Recipe
As you all know I love adai recipes soo much....I just modified ammas adai recipe and my millet adai recipe and tried this one replacing rice with cholam(vella cholam) / sorghum / jowar.Recently I tried Sorghum dosai and my next try is this Sorghum Adai.Adai and coconut chutney are a match made in heaven, I love to have it with jaggery too.

Our internet is down for the past 2 days and I was relaxing too so no posts also.Thank to hubby who is sharing his internet with me and today thought to resume posting as if I give a long gap then I will become lazy ;)
