Pesarattu - Green gram dosa

Pesarettu is a famous break fast in Andhra / Telugana. (We should give importance to both the states). Main ingredient being whole green gram. It is usually served with upma and called as MLA pesa
I have not had pesarettu in any restaurants before, but had been curious to taste it. So searched for recipe and tried it. Fairly simple, but I won’t say it’s delicious.

·         Green Gram – 1 cup
·         Raw rice – 2 tbsp
·         Onion – 1 Big size
·         Green Chilies – 2 number
·         Ginger – 1 inch length piece.
·         Salt to taste
·         Oil for cooking it

Soak Green gram and rice over night or atleast 3-4 hours.

Roughly chop onions, green chili and ginger.
Grind the gram, rice, onion, Green chilies, Ginger in a dosa batter consistency. Not too thick or running. Add salt.

No fermentation required. U can make pesarettu right away after grinding.  Cook it like our usual dosa. Drizzle lil oil. Sprinkle some finely chopped onion and chili. I repeat I am lazy and I dint do it.
The batter looks slight green, spreads smooth like dosa, while cooking u get the smell of egg, tastes like adai. This has some multiple personality disorder.
 Serve Hot with Chutney or pickle of ur choice.
