Pesarattu(Moong dal dosa)

Moong dal dosa  or pesarattu dosa is a popular breakfast or tiffin recipe in Andhra pradesh.The dosa can be made with whole moong dal beans and split moon dal beans.Both tastes great.I make the pesarattu dosa in both versions.Pesarattu generally served with upma or cocconut chutney.This is  a very easy tiffin recipe as the batter need not to be fermented.

Moong dal can be a great nutritious addition to a balanced diet.It is a healthy meal that provides high levels of protein and fiber while containing relatively few calories and little fat.In addition, it is an excellent source of wide range of vitamins and minerals.This week Marathon I  selected' Easy tiffins' theme.As this will be easy as i cook lot of varieties to  my kids.This is one their favorite .We can serve this as evening tiffins too.I'm posting this recipe in Blogging Marathon#42.Here goes my easy recipe.
  • Moong dal 2 cups
  • one onion(medium to small)
  • green chillies 3 to 4
  • ginger 3 to 4 small pieces
  • jeera 1 tspn
  • oil as required
  • salt to taste

  • Soak moong dal in water atleast 3 hrs or we can soak overnight then dosa will be more tasty.I generally do the second one as i can easily prepare for breakfast.
  • Grind all ingredients(except oil) along with moong dal coarsely and keep the batter ready for dosa.
  • Heat a pan,drizzle some oil on the top and take a 1/4cup of batter in the ladle and spread into a thin circle
  • Spread 1/2 spn of oil on the edges and roast it until golden brown.Flip it and spread little oil and let it cook the other side as well
  • Repeat the same for remaing dosas.Serve hot with cocnut chutney or chutney of your choice
