Usually, we make adai varieties with rice, dals and vegetables like tapioca, bottle gourd and yam.
This is a very different adai recipe.
The main ingredient here is sweet potato. Usually, we can make tamarind kuzhambu with it. In my house, we make Pongal kuzhambu adding sweet potato in it. It always gives a special flavour.. Some people make sweet paniyaram with it. But this adai gives a different taste with a light sweetness and spice.
