i would like to comment only the oil. instead of oil u can mix a little water with ghee and oil. this will give u additional taste for the adai and also u can add dried ginger podi to the chakkavartti. this will also additional taste as well the dried ginger (Chukku podi) will be a good digestion source for this chakka elai ada.
