Pesarattu/ Moong Dal Dosa

Pesarattu is one of the traditional dishes of Andhra Pradesh. It is very famous dish at the restaurants and also at wedding receptions.The combination of Pesarattu and Upma is  Yum!!!  Ahhh mouth watering when I 'm just talking about it.So here goes the recipe

Ingredients :
(Makes 7 to 8 dosas)

Green Gram or Moong whole or Mung Bean - 1 cup or around 150gms.
Raw Rice - 2 tbsp
Green chillies - 3
Ginger - 1 tbsp chopped
Onion -1
Salt - as per taste

  1. Soak the green gram along with the raw rice for a 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Grind it with green chilli, ginger and salt to a smooth paste.
  3. Heat a tawa, spread a ladle full of batter . Add the chopped onions on the batter immediately. Press them on to the dosa with the spatula so that they dont fall off the batter.
  4. As soon as one side is cooked, flip it to the other side carefully.
  5. Fold the pesarattu and serve it with chutney or sambar.

My Notes :
  1. This batter doesn't need fermentation and gets sour over time. So its better to use up everything immediately. Don't use left over batter.
  2. For Upma Pesarattu , add a big spoonful of upma just before serving the dosa.
