Palakkad Adai

One lazy weekend my husband was reminiscing about his childhood days. He was telling me about good times spent with old friends. He told me about a special dish called palakkad adai which he tasted at a friend’s home some 15 years back. Dear hubby was able to tell me some crucial details like – it used black urad dhal, was a bit hard in consistency and it was served with coriander chutney. So I googled and found a recipe from here. The adai came out good, but not very hard. Hubby told that it was good but not like the original. So the search for authentic palakkad adai continues…..So friends, if anyone knows the recipe please share it.
