I am here with my friday post in advance as I am leaving to my aunts place tommorrow :) So no access to net for the next 3 days kind of good as atleast for 3 days my fingers, eyes and my camera will be in rest ;)
Pesarattu dosai is my favourite since my childhood days as amma makes it atleast once in a month. It is very filling and tasty for breakfast.
1.Soak green gram(paasi paruppu) with rice overnight for 8hrs. The next day drain water and grind it with ginger and green chillies to a smooth batter, add little water to make to batter consistency.2.Then mix in salt, hing, chopped onion, garlic and coriander leaves and mix well. Add water if the batter is too thick.Heat a dosa tawa, take a laddle full of batter and spread it thin like dosa. Sprinkle oil on the sides and cook on both sides.Your pesarattu dosai is ready to be served. Tastes best with coconut chutney.
The green color dosas looks fresh and with the crunchy onions in every bite.....yummy combination. Start the day with this nutritious and healthy dosas. I have tasted pesarattu dosa in some hotels and they serve avial as combination like adais. But I like coconut chutney the best.
- You can grind the batter coarsely and make pesarattu thick like adai too. We like it a bit thin and slightly crispy.
- Adding garlic is purely optional but sure enhances taste. And as we all know adding ginger and garlic with green gram or any bean/dhal variety helps in good digestion.
- Adjust green chillies according to your spice level.
