Pesarattu

Dosa batter is a must in my home and I will be lost without them.I always make sure that I have enough batter at home as my kids loves to have dosa with sambar everyday.As the dosa batter was over and I was feeling very lazy and bored to have the same kind of doas.When I was in Owasso my good friend Lakshmi used to prepare green gram dosa which was very tasty but never really got the change to prepare them.As I have a habit of writing down the recipes and searched high and low for it. I have add garlic and freshly grated coconut to my recipe.

Pesarattu

Ingredients

Serving Size:5

1 cup whole green gram with skin
1/2cup rice
5 green chillies
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
1tbsp cumin seeds
few sprig curry leaves
1/4 cup freshly grated coconut
salt to taste.
finely chopped onions

Preparation Method:
Soak the whole green gram and rice overnite and grind to a paste with ginger garlic paste,green chillies,curry leaves and grated coconut. transfer the batter to a bowl and add the cumin seeds and salt. Blend them well and set aside for 1 hour or you can make doas straight way.The consistency of the batter should be thick enough to thickly coat on a spoon when dipped. Heat the iron griddle or non-stick tawa well.

Pour a spoonful of batter in the centre, spread with the back of the spoon to a thin round.Sprinkle some of the chopped onions. Pour a tsp. of ghee or oil over it.Flip over and allow the another side to be cooked. Remove with spatula when crisp. Serve hot with chutney and / or sambar.
