Pesarattu (Green Gram Dosa)

  • 2 cups moong dal, cleaned and soaked for an hour
  • 1/2 cup rice, cleaned and soaked for an hour
  • green chillies, chopped to taste
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • oil for pan frying


Drain the dal mixture and grind coarsely. Mix in the chillies, salt, coriander and onions and enough batter to make a dripping consistency.

Heat tawa or griddle, splash some water over it and immediately pour some batter and spread out. When edges start to raise, put oil all around and a little bit on top. It will come off clean when cooked.

Serve with coconut chutney.
