Andhra Pesarattu Dosa / Pesarattu Dosa Recipe

Pesarattu Dosa

This is popular breakfast recipe of Andhra. Pesarattu dosa is made with whole green moong dal and very little rice. This dosa was is my 'to do' list for a long time. I have tasted this once in Sangeetha restaurant and badly want to give a try at home.
I could find this recipe in lot of blogs. Such a healthy recipe and is really filling one.  So easy to make and no fermentation required.  You have to  just grind it with some spices and and start making dosa. Coconut chutney goes well with it.  I used to make it now during weekend mornings.
To the recipe,

Pesarattu Dosa recipe  - Ingredients:

1. Soak the green dal and rice for over night or for 8 hrs. I soaked overnight.

2. Grind the green dal and rice along with chili,ginger, and garlic. (If you want dosa to be little thick like adai you can grind it carsely or grind it to smooth batter.)
3.No need to ferment it. The batter is ready to make dosa.

4. To the batter add the chopped onions, chopped coriander, hing and salt and mix well.

5. Heat a tawa  / griddle  and pour a ladle of batter and make thin circle like dosa. Smear with little oil and flip on the other side to cook.
