PESARATTU RECIPE
Pesarattu recipe,dosa  made using whole green gram dal,a popular Andhra style recipe. Pesarattu is generally served for breakfast or dinner. Though i have heard this but never tasted this and attempted to make this at home. My in laws side they used to make a pessarattu with yellow moong dal and rice, which some how doesn’t fascinated me, and it will be slightly dry too. This recipe with green moong dal i learnt from my friend who regularly makes pesarattu at her place . When i made this last week, we all liked it especially the kids. Here is the recipe for easy and healthy pesarattu. Traditionally they serve Pesarattu with Rava upma inside and they call this as MLA pesarattu. Check out my

Hi, just a small update, along with this we add crushed cumin & pepper powder adn that gives a very good taste to it and so we dont even need any chutney or so for the side.

though its optional, i thought of sharing.

Thanks
Jayashree.

You can use any variety of rice

We tried sprouted green gram without adding rice.
We found that Dosa was not coming properly.We added rawa and tried.
Pesarattu Dosa came.Both the outer sides were cooked but not the inside.We seek your guidance.
Thanks

Sprouts will be too soft and you have to add rice. If you make it thin it will get cooked inside too.
