  8. I marred a non sticky pan by preparing adai. Each time I prepared adai, it used to stick to it stubbornly & I used to dig up the thingy with my shovel so vehemently that the coating gave away one day. I gifted it to my maid who never turned up after that. Now we are not in talking terms.
    Yesterday I saw your recipe. Today I prepared, ate & am so happy that my problem is solved once & for all. It is tasty, crispy, easy to grind & easy to make & contains high fiber. I love adai. Thank you for bringing it back to my life once again. God bless you.
