Pesarattu is a popular Andhra breakfast item. This dosa is made with whole green gram and a fistful of rice which adds in some crispiness to the dosa. A variety of pesarattu served with rava upma is known as MLA pesarattu. Pesarattu is usually served with allam pachadi, the Andhra ginger pickle.
This healthy dosa is full of protein and makes a nutritious and filling breakfast. This dosa requires no fermentation unlike normal dosa batter, so make dosa instantly with these batter. If you are not using this batter immediately, then store it in the refrigerator. Ginger pickle is the best accompaniment for this dosa but coconut chutney or peanut chutney also goes well with pesarattu.
Notes and Tips
- You can mix in some rice flour into the batter, instead of the raw rice.
- Adding 1 or 2 cloves of garlic enhances the taste of the dosa.
- If you prefer a thinner and crsipier dosa, spread the batter thinly.
