Pesarattu

Pesarattu (dosa) prepared with moong dal, is the signatory breakfast of our Andhra Pradesh in India. Done to golden perfection, sprinkled with chopped onions inside, served traditionally with coconut, ginger chutneys and sambhar, have 2 or 3 pesarattus for breakfast, you will be in a food induced delirious haze all day.

Ingredients:-

1) 1 cup whole green moong dal

2) 1/2 cup rice

Soak the green moon dal along with water overnight. Next day morning drain the water and grind to thick paste.While grinding add 1/2 stick of ginger, 4 to 5 green chilli and 1 tsp of salt.Grind it into fine paste or medium consistency.

3) 2 onions-finely chopped

4) Few cumin stands

Process:-

Check the salt and chilli taste and adjust accordingly.Heat a cast iron flat pan, add 2 tsp of oil. The pan must be hot for pesarattu to come out in good shape. If you sprinkle water on the pan, it must sizzle.

Pour one ladle full of batter into the center of pan and spread it around in a circular fashion (from inside out) shaping the batter into a thin round.

Wait few seconds and sprinkle raw cumin and raw onion on top.Wait for few minutes untill the bottom gets golden, and than turn as shown.

First few attempts may not turn out good but don’t be discouraged. Try again. It takes time but once you get the hang of it, it’s really quite easy to prepare them, just like dosa.
