Andhra Pesarattu / Moong Dal Dosa

Preparation :-

  • 8hrs before u want to prepare dosas soak 1/2 tumbler green moongdal and and less than 1/4 tumbler raw rice . Wash them nicely and pour sufficient water . (Better to soak at night if u want it to prepare for morning break fast).

  • In the morning drain the water .

  • Chop 1 small onion and 1 or 2 green chillies and ginger .

  • Grind drained moongdal- rice mixture along with chopped onion , ginger , green chilli and 1tspn salt . (donot add water)

  • Once they r finely crushed add enough water and grind again .

  • So finally it should look like dosa batter consistency. If water u added while grinding is not enough u can add after transfering into a bowl.

  • Now heat a Dosa pan add 1 tspn oil and rub it circularly with half horizontally cutted onion.

  • when it is heated add 1 laddle full of batter and immediately rotate the batter with the same laddle to form a dosa. Try to rotate fast till it forms a thin dosa.

  • Pour 1/2 tspn oil in & around dosa. If u want sprinkle finely chopped onion , few cumin seeds and coriander leaves .

  • When Corners turn light brownish reverse the pesarattu other side.

  • Fry for a min and takeout into a plate.

  • Yummy yummy pesarattu is ready to serve with hot hot upma and freshly grinded Ginger chutney.

    Good recipe, Preethi. I have heard of putting onions on top of dosa while preparing it. Does grinding the onion make it even more tastt?
    Hi krishnan , actually before doing any dosa we will wipe the whole pan with onion and then we will pour batter . The reason behind it is dosa will comeout quickly without sticking . So i used same technique , adding few onion pieces while grinding gives good taste and dosas come out without sticking .U can fry and add finely chopped onion and jeera on top of dosa . i hope i cleared ur doubt.

    With cheers ,
