Pesarattu is nothing but dosa made out of Moong (Whole). This is a typical Andhra preparation & very famous. Its also called MLA pesarattu is some places - No idea why??? Its traditionally served with some upma inside the dosa. I made it minus upma as thats how my family likes it!
Moong(Whole) - 2 cups
G.Chillies - 7 no
Ginger - 2"piece
Rice flour - 2 cups
Salt - to taste
Oil - little
1. Soak moong for 5-6 hours & gringd to a fine paste along with G.chillies & Ginger.
2. Transfer to a vessel & add riceflour & salt & mix well. Theres no need to ferment this. You can make dosas rightaway.
3. Spread like regular dosas & smear oil & cook both sides. You can make it plain or add onions, like in Onion uthappam.
Serve with coconut chutney or even simple pickle.. goes well with anything! You can add onions inside dosa & make too.
