Pesarattu/Moong Dal Dosa.

Pesarattu Moong Dal Dosa.

Hello Sweeties!!! Summer is here in full swing and we are looking to spend most of our daytime out of homes every weekend. More time out of home and less timespend cooking inside, which also means the lunch or brunch has to be quick and nutritious and yet healthy.

We are not a cereal and milk breakfast family. We need our dose of desi/Indian breakfast food. Idli- Dosa of different types, poha or such foods make us happy.

This dosa can be made anytime when people come over or you run out of any new food ideas. It is very healthy and light on the tummy, so if anyone is under the weather or just needs a change of taste, this dosa is the best bet.

You will need;
2 Cups Split green Moong dal soaked in enough water for 3-4 hours

1/2 cup rice flour
salt and sugar to taste
1/2 Onion Chopped fine

5-6 curry leaves
Ginger grated- 2 tbspns
oil to fry

Grind the soaked moong dal  fine. I like to keep it  a bit coarse, but its upto you. 

In a bowl, mix the rice flour and the ground dal  into  a thin batter, add the grated ginger, onions, curry leaves,  salt and sugar to the mixture. Mix well into  a pourable consistency or pancake consistency.

Heat the griddle/pan to very hot, once hot, grease it with some oil, spread the batter on the hot pan to form a small circle. Cover and cook for 2 minutes, flip and cook the other side. 

Enjoy it off the griddle with some coconut chutney and hot chai.
