Adai Dosai | Lentil crepes | Breakfast recipe

Adai Dosai , a lentil crepes usually make this as breakfast. It's very fulfilling and delicious breakfast recipe. I like to have this with plain sugar,to me that's the best combination for adai. When i was chennai, i came to know that adai is served with aviyal in many hotels there. But so far i haven't tried that combo in home or in restaurant.
My hubby doesn't like to have adai (even puttu & upma) with sugar,so for his sake i started to make coconut chutney, but nowadays i too like that combo.Having as it or with any side dish, either way, it's so tasty and fulfilling.
PS: I dont want to remove the old photos,so keep as it is :-) .
