Half tbsp raw rice

¼ inch ginger

Onion chopped- one-fourth cup

Serving 5 people


Firstly, take a bowl. Wash and soak 2 cups whole green moong & 2 tbsp raw rice with enough water for 4-6 hours or overnight.

Then, drain the water and add it to a blender. Put 1-inch ginger, 1- 1/2 green chilly, and 2 teaspoons cumin seeds also in the blender.

Well, blend into a smooth batter. Sprinkle some water only if needed.

Add salt and mix it well. The consistency of the batter should be thick like in the case of idli batter.

Next, heat a dosa tawa on medium flame and spread the pesarattu batter on it as thin as possible.

Further, drizzle oil all over the pesarattu also sprinkle finely chopped onions on it.

Let it cook on low to medium flame for a longer time till golden brown spots appear on its surface.

Now, gently remove the dosa from the tawa and fold it in half. Repeat the same process with the rest of the batter also.

Finally, serve hot and enjoy!

It can be eaten with Coconut Chutney & Andhra Special Ginger Chutney.
