Pesaratu

Another addition to the list of items i learnt from my MIL :).. We never really made this at home.. I remember amma making it with green gram & both appa and me had a huge list of why we don't like it & we literally banned it..
Then after many many years, i tasted this and liked it.. I can't say a lot, but then its a good variation plus its so healthy.. So to a super easy recipe!




Ingredients
1. Moongdal - 1 cup
2. Raw Rice - fistful
3. Green chillies - 3
4. Curry leaves - a sprig
5. Cilantro - 3tbsp
6. Onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped
7. Salt - to taste
8. Oil - to drizzle


Preparation Time!!
1. Take moog dal in a bowl. To this add rice & soak this in water for 2-3 hours..The proportion is always for every cup of moong dal, a fistful of rice goes in..




2. After 3 hrs, drain water.. take the rice dal mixture in a blender. To this add chillies, curry leaves & cilantro along with 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup  water and make a smooth batter




3. To the batter, add salt and finely chopped onions and mix well. Then make pesarattu by pouring a ladle of batter and drizzle oil and cook for a few min




This is a very soft version of a dosa and we always have it with raw onion chutney.. Serve hot :)

  9. Great looking pesarattu. This is a heavy dish, despite that there is a popular dish called MLA pesarattu - it has upma inside the pesarattu - and it is a filling meal. Why the name? I have no clue. It used to be served in the local MLA canteen when it was open to the public.
