Pesarattu-Green gram dosaPesarattu with ginger chutney

Pesarattu is not only easy to prepare but also very nutritious as we are using green gram to make this dosa . A delicacy from Andhra Pradesh, it is traditionally served with plain upma and ginger chutney. Now to the famous and nutritious pancake recipe.

Ingredients needed

Whole Green gram - 1 cup
Raw rice - 2 tsp
Onion - 1
Ginger - 1 inch piece
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 4-5

For the toppings

Some finely chopped onions

Method

Soak green gram and rice together for 5- 6 hours. Grind it to a smooth paste along with 1 onion, green chillies, ginger and needed salt. Add cumin seeds and mix well.

Heat a tava, pour a ladle of batter in the centre and spread it in a circle from the centre to the outside of the tawa.

Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa .

Sprinkle chopped onions on the top (see pic 2) and press it lightly with a ladle or spatula.

After it gets cooked, flip it over to the other side, drizzle a little oil and cook till done.

Serve hot with ginger chutney or coconut chutney.

  13. Wow! thats an easy one. No big works. Simple as a simple dosa. I need to taste it... Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Janardhanan, my roommate purchased a normal tava and it goes sticking all the way. Now I am accostumed to it. I think it is always better to start with the hard things and you get to learn a lot.

    I will try and let you know the feedback.Now when I say I will let you know, it actually means if there is any problem I faced while preparing I will report it. :)

    Its nice trying new recipes everyday. Now I am on a protien diet by my dietesian. They are going to make me the new suriya :) kidding... it's a part of gaining power and reducing fat. But I like to try dosa as it is never harmful to health.

    If I keep writing I will continue for the whole day and you will be bored reading al these Abhilash kahani... so thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

    Regards,
    Abhilash

  31. Hi Padhu,

    Could you please let me know the number of pesarattu which can be made out of the measurement you have specified?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Dear Madam,

    Thanks for the recipe. I am a working professional and find it time consuming to make one dosa at a time.

    Is it possible to steam the batter and make idlis?
    Do we have to change the proportions a bit.

    Do let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Vishwanath -You can try steaming it like dhokla. You do not have to change the proportions. But dosa tastes best.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Do we need to allow batter to ferment....

    ReplyDelete
  35. i use 1 cup rice with 1 cup whole moong this ratio is true.

    1. Swati - follow the above recipe exactly. You will get very good pesarattu. I have written only 2 tsp raw rice.
