Pesarattu Recipe - Andhra Pesarattu Dosai (Whole Green Gram Dosa)

Pesarattu Recipe

Pesarattu is my favourite since my childhood days as amma makes it atleast once in a month. It is very filling and tasty for breakfast.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 ;)

    How to make pesarattu - Step2

My Notes:

  • 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.

  40. i tried Pesarattu .taste was good
    but i felt there was a bit of raw smell of green gram
    how to avoid it

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh not really sure...I havent found any raw smell at all.May be in that case you can pressure cook for 2 whistles and then grind it...but not sure whether it will work because havent it tried it that way myself.

      Delete
    2. plz tell me if i am correct
      we should soak gram and rice whole day and
      then grind it at evening and then again leave it like that
      for whole night .
      and then cook it in the morning plz reply quickly

      Delete
    3. Yes soaking atleast for 8hrs is needed...after grinding you can instantly make pesarattu no need to leave to rest.
