Pesarattu (Green gram dal dosa)

Pesarattu, traditional Andhra Pradesh dish is prepared mainly with green gram. In my home, one of the quick and healthy dinner options is Pesarattu dosa. 
 Par Boiled Rice (idly rice)                1 cup
Moong dhal (Green Gram)                 ¼ cup
Fenugreek                                      ½ tsp.
Grated ginger                                 1 tbsp.
Green Chilies                                 5 no
Asafetida                                    1/4 tsp.
Curry leaves                                 few
Oil                                               2 tbsp
Salt                                             to taste
  • Wash and soak the rice and dhal together in hot water for 3 hours (you may have to skip this step, if you are in superfast mode)
  • Grind it to a smooth paste along with green chilies, asafetida, ginger, curry leaves and salt.
  • Heat the dosa pan, pour the batter and spread it from the center. Pour a tsp. of oil over the edges.
  • When one side is cooked well, flip over to the other side. If necessary, add little oil over the edges, and remove when it is fully cooked.
  • Serve with coconut chutney and Sāmbhar.
  • If you like spicier dosa, add   more Green chilies.
  • For more flavor, cut some carrot, coriander, mint leaves and mix with batter. Then make dosa as said above. It will give a different taste.
