Green moong pancakes/Pesaratu

I heard about these dosas a few weeks back from my close friend.I was eager to try and this week for blog hop wednesday, i have been partnered with Priya from Bon Appetit.I had a varied choice on her blog.I decided to make the pesarattu as i had already heard accolades from my friend.

Pesarattu is associated to the Telugu cuisine.Its a dosa/crepe like bread made primarily of rice and green moong beans.

This is how i made it:

Raw rice 1 cup
Green moong beans 3/4 cup
Urad dal/Black lentils a handful (optional..i didn't add it)
Green chillies 1 or 2 as per your spice levels.
Ginger 1" piece
Salt to taste
Onions chopped finely 1 cup to sprinkle

  • Soak the rice and dals for a few hours (5-6 hrs) or over night.Drain excess water and grind to a thick batter.
  • Mix the salt and let the batter sit for a while
  • Heat the pan/tawa to make the pesarattu/dosa.
  • Pour laddle fulls of batter, sprinkle chopped onions on top and drizzle the ends with sesame oil or vegetable oil.

  • Cook on both sides until light brown in color.
  • Serve with onion chutney like i did or any spicy tangy chutney.

  • Tasty healthy pesarattus are ready for breakfast!
