Ingredients to make Pesarattu or Green Moong Dal Dosa

  • Green moong dal 1 cup
  • Rice 1 tbsp (if using rice flour, add 1/2 tbsp)
  • Ginger 1/2 inch, grated
  • Green chilies 2
  • Asafoetida/Heeng 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or ghee for frying
  • Fried onions and chopped coriander to sprinkle on top (Optional)

How to make Pesarattu or Green Moong Dal Dosa

  1. Wash and soak rice and dal in a large bowl with enough water. Keep it soaked overnight or minimum 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Drain the water, and pour the dal and rice into a mixer along with the chilies.
  3. Make a smooth paste, trying not to use any water unless absolutely necessary.
  4. The batter should be smooth, and flowy like a dosa batter.
  5. Add the grated ginger, salt, hing and mix well.
  6. Heat a dosa pan, tawa or non-stick girdle, and grease it with a few drops of oil.
  7. Take a dollop of batter and spread it on the pan in circular motions until it has formed a thin layer.
  8. Give the dosa 3 to 4 minutes, and flip it over, giving the other side the same time.
  9. Fold in half, or top it with fried onion and chopped coriander and serve hot with condiment of choice.

My Tip:

This Dosa is usually made with whole moong dal (the green skinned ones), but you can make them with the split (yellow/dhuli moong) ones also. The taste does differ, though both are equally tasty.
