Pesarattu ( Moong Dal Dosa)
This is just an amazing and healthier way to have a Dosa.
Again thanks to my cook “Sangeeta ” who made this fabulous dosa which is now made at least 2 times a week at my place.
Green Moong Dal is high in protein and fibre and low in fat and and calories.
Easy to make no long hours of soaking . I soaked it for about 2 hours in warm water .
3/4 cup Green Moong Dal
A pinch of hing
1/3 tsp cumin
2-3 green chillies
1″ pc of ginger
2 cloves garlic ( optional)
2 tbsp coriander fresh( optional)
2 tbsp rice flour ( to give it a crispy texture)
Wash and soak the dal for about 2-3 hours
Grind in a mixie adding all the ingredients . Reserve the rice flour.
Pour the batter in a bowl add water if it’s too thick. Add salt and rice flour.
Take a ladle full and spread on a hot seasoned tawa. Make a nice thin dosa.
Sprinkle a few drops of ghee/ oil on the dosa. As it starts browning in the underside and becomes crisp start lifting the sides with a flat spatula. Roll . Serve with a chutney of your choice.
One can even add a filling of onions, veggies , Paneer etc. But since I like my Dosa undisturbed I didn’t make a filling.
