Pesarattu is a popular south Indian breakfast and lunch dish. Basically it is a dosa(pancake) made from moong daal(green gram). Green grams are a very good source of proteins, thus making it a perfect and healthy breakfast.

Whole green moong : 1 glass
Rice                        : 1/4 glass
onions                     : 1 small
onions, chopped      : 1 big
ginger                      : 1 inch piece
jeera/cumin              : 1 tspn
green chillies            : 2-3
salt to taste

  • Wash n soak rice and moong with excess water for 6-8 hours or overnight
  • After 6 hrs, grind them together along with 1 small onion, ginger and green chilly

  • Grind it to a smooth paste with little water and salt
  • Batter should be of medium consistency.Add some more water if required

  • Remove the batter, add a tspn of cumin and mix it thoroughly
  • Heat a non stick dosa pan , take a ladle full of batter n spread in circular way. Try to spread as thin as possible. 
  • Immediately sprinkle some chopped onions on the dosa and slightly press with a spatula
  • cook for 3-4 mins on medium, drizzle a tspn of oil around the dosa
  •  allow them to turn golden brown n then carefully flip it on the other side

  • cook for few more mins , take out.
  • I prepared hing chutney instead of traditinal ginger chutney

Makes: about 10-12 dosa
