Pesarattu literally means Moong Dal Dosa. Pesarattu is also called as pesara dosa in Telugu. The word Pesarattu is derived from two words pesara and attu. Pesara means mung lentils or moong dal and attu means dosa.

This recipe was sent to me by Austin D’sa from my parish who was a student of Don Bosco College of Hospitality studies. I tried it out and it was extremely nice. 

1 cup whole moong dal (green gram lentil)
1/4 cup rice
1/2 teaspoon methi (fenugreek seeds)
1 tablespoon ginger, grated
2 green chilies
1/2 cup coriander stem, chopped (optional )
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder
Handful of coriander leaves, chopped
Oil or ghee to fry

Soak the rice and moong dal over night. The next morning blend all the above ingredients in a blender and add very little water while blending Because moong dal and onions leaves water. The batter must be thick pouring consistency. Do not add salt
