Pesarattu is an Andhra speciality!.It is made with whole green moong dal and its very healthy.It is typically served with spicy ginger chutney.
NOTE:Pesarattu is mostly served with a filling of rava upma also called as "MLA Pesarattu". You can add a mound to the centre of the dosa(like aloo filling used for masala dosa) for some variety:)

  • 1 cup whole green moong dal soaked
  • 1/4 cup of raw rice
  • Ginger 1 inch piece
  • Few sprigs of coriander leaves
  • Green chillies -  3 to 4 
  • Peppercorns - few
  • 2 tbsp of oil, for drizzling on dosa while cooking
  • 1/4 cup of minced onions for garnish (optional)


  • First Soak the moong dal and rice together for at least 4 hours .
  • Grind together with rest of the ingredients and some salt + water
  • Heat a tawa and spread one ladle-full of batter into a dosa.

  • Spread it thinner for a crisper version or thicker for a soft version depending on your taste. Drizzle with some oil and spread the minced onions on top (optional).
  • When both sides are cooked, remove from tawa and serve hot with spicy andhra ginger chutney.
