Pesarattu recipe

Pesarattu is Andhra special,which you can fond in many of the blogs,native from Andhra...Its made out of green moong and little rice and it should be thin by the original recipe...I think some make with yellow moong too,but I think pesarattu with whole green moon is healthier and has a good texture too!
Ginger flavored chutney is apt for pesarattu coz, the ginger flavor suppress the raw smell in pesarattu and is a great combination and just made for each other!

My version of pesarattu adai


Now this has become a regular menu in our breakfast,only thing I should say,now I have changed the recipe more like Adai dosai,which both me and my hubby like :)

Pesarattu recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast
Prep Time: 12 hrs    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


Whole green moong  1 cup 
Raw rice  2 tblsp 
Ginger(optional)  1 inch 
Jeera(optional)  1 tsp 
Green chillies  4 
Onion  1 
Curry leaves  1 sprig 
Coriander leaves  2 tblsp chopped 
Asafetida  1/4 tsp 
Salt & Water  As needed 

I always avoid grinding jeera and ginger as I dont like that smell in this. But authentic recipe has it. 

Method:

  1. Soak whole green moong,with rice,through night,morning drain the water and first grind ginger,green chillies,jeera and then add this moong and grind to a coarse batter,of adai consistency(We like ours bit thick and coarsely ground,if you want thin pesarattu,grind smooth).

  2. Mix in salt,asafetida,onion,curry and coriander leaves and mix well.Add water if needed.
  3. Heat a tava and spread to your required thickness just like we make dosa,add oil.

  4. Flip to cook on the other side too.(cook 2 mins in medium flame each side or till golden brown)

  5. Serve with coconut chuteny or chuTney of your choice..I served with ginger flavored coconut chutney...

Notes

  • You can make pesarattu with sprouted whole green moong too.
  • This is my own version of pesarattu, I have made my own changes,so it may vary from authentic recipe!

  24. hi raji,
    As usual ur photos are awesome, they make u mouthwatering....., I do prepare pesarattu most of the times, When I was in India, I used to prepare with split moong dal, when I came here my Andra friend uma asked me use dehusked Green gram dal & now I make with it, She also says- you have to make pesarattu & like potato filling in masala dosa you have to put uppumavu in the middle, fold it & serve it!!!!!, & as u said it is a very healthy dish.

    ReplyDelete
  25. A wonderful click of that delicious pesarattu makes me hungry now..

    ReplyDelete
  26. Just came here from Laavanya's pesarattu post and I see this here.:D
    I've made pesarattu a couple of times but have not been too happy with the results. I think my proportions were not right. I clicked pics too intending to post it, but could not since it didn't taste all that great.:D
    I should try your proportions the next time.
    Your pesarattu looks gorgeous, Raks!

  29. TBC,
    you know what,when the first time I made even I dint liked much the taste,I felt something raw,but afterwards,I tried adding more of asafetida and onions I mix up with the batter itself and made bit thicker....then I liked,the key is the ingredients like asafetida,onion and green chillies u have to add more,that all! Hope you will like next time:)

  30. I too love this a little coarse and make this with sprouted moong beans. I rest the batter for about 30mins and love pesarattu - a vestige from my Secunderabad days:) Yours looks green and nice, and the ginger twist to chutney is new too!!

  55. Hi Raji... I made pesaratu yesterday & to my surprise every body (my hubby & bro in law hate green gram) in my home liked it and had stomatch full. A much heathier way to make them eat a cereal. I made the same chutney for the dosa... the combination is a super hit...

    ReplyDelete
  56. I made some just now and it turned out just perfect... my one year old smacked his lips as he ate. I've always wondered about good ways to give him protein, and you just made it so easy and tasty! Thank you very much. Just a word - I had forgotten the cumin initially and made one pesarattu before I realised and added it later. Must say, I preferred it without cumin.. .

  60. I tried this adai. But though I browned it ton both sides, the dosa came off sticky. Also I had to take the dosa in pieces from the tave. Could it be I added too little rice. The dosa did not come dry and crisp though I had browned it on both sides. I have been on your site since last october and I try out the recipes. Please help.

    ReplyDelete

    1. No without rice also the adai comes out good. Only that it wont be crispy. This will be more on softer side, but definitely not sticky. more water could be the problem. Or could be the pan. use a well seasoned pan for best results.

    2. Thanks for your reply. Will try again.
