Pesarattu|Moong Dal Dosa

       Pesarattu is a Dosa  unique to Telugu cuisine/Andhra.Pesarattu is made out of Green moong/Moong dal but unlike a dosa, it does not contain Urad dal.Its green colour attracts kids more so you can put this moong dal dosa in their mouth without much fuss.You can also make pesarattu paniyaram or small pesarattu dosa along with grated carrot and nuts with the same moong dal batter.

        I love this pesarattu because it is healthy and it tastes wonderful.Making pesarattu with sprouted moong dal makes your breakfast even more healthier.In andhra pesarattu is served with upma,or onions in the middle .I instead added finely chopped onions to the dosa batter.To make the dosa crispier you can add rice flour to the batter andcan  oil to the bottom while making dosa.

Grind batter

  • If the batter is too thick add some water to it.
  • Finally add the finely chopped onion to the Batter and mix well.
Add chopped onions as well.

  • When there is no batter in the middle(usually i spread leaving the middle part) and when the color changes flip and cook for another 2 mins.If you want the dosa to be crisp don't flip it.
