Pesarattu (Green gram dal Dosa)

Green Gram dal1 cup
Ginger1 inch
Green Chilli3 or 4
Salt1 teaspoon
Rice (Pacha arisi)1/2 cup
Cumin seeds (Jeera)1/2 teaspoon

For Garnishing

Finely chopped onion1/2 cup
Finely chopped green chilli1 table spoon
Finely chopped ginger1 teaspoon
Finely chopped coriander leave1 tablespoon
Cooking Oil 1 table spoon

  1. Soak the whole green gram dal and rice together in the water overnight about 8-10 hours.

  2. Wash the green gram dal , drain the water and grind the dal along with green chilies, ginger and onion 

  3. Grind all the ingredients into a fine paste by adding little by little. The batter consistency should be like a dosa batter and also the batter should be little coarse. Don’t ferment the batter. If the batter is too tight add water and mix it thoroughly.It should not be too tight, not too watery. Shift the batter to a bowl and add the salt and mix well.

  4. Heat oil in a pan and add the finely chopped green chili, ginger, coriander leveas and onion and fry for 2 mins and keep it separately. This is to garnish the Pesarattu.

  5. Heat a tawa/griddle on a medium heat and grease it with oil. The pan must be hot for Peserattu to come out in a good shape. If you sprinkle the water on the pan, it should sizzle.
  6. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it on the pan and spread it into a thin round layer. After 2 seconds, using spatula spread the batter so that the edges become thin. Wait for few seconds and drizzle little oil around the edges of Pesarattu and on top of the Peserattu. Cook in low flame till it becomes crispy. As we have spread the dosa very thin, we don't need to cook on the other side
  7. Sprinkle the fried onion+green chilli+cummin seed mixture on the top 

  8. When the dosa is cooked and it becomes crispier, fold it to half or roll it fully

  9. Remove from the pan and serve with ginger chutney.
