Karunai kizhangu adai recipe, Yam adai

Karunai kizhangu adai/ Yam adai is a yummy savory pancake served as side dish during lunch along with sambar or any other gravy. Usually we serve stir fry/ poriyal during lunch so this one surely stands out and still has all features of traditional side dish. Yam adai is prepared by making a dough/ mixture with cooked yam, onion, fried gram dal flour and rice flour then made into thin patty/ adai and cooked on tawa. This delicacy is from my mom who is expert in cooking. I have been eating this yam adai since childhood and thought why not share my favorite recipe with my readers. Karunai kizhangu has lot of health benefits so adding it in our diet is a must so do try this new recipe and serve it for hot lunch and I am sure everyone will like it.

For this recipe I used frozen yam as it is hard to get fresh yam here, so if you are using fresh yam it will be more tasty. Also I have used very less oil for making each yam adai but you can use more quantity if oil enough to cook the adai will improve texture and taste. Yam adai tastes best when served hot. So lets get to the making.
