Pappu Rotta

Ingredients to make Pappu Rotta

  • Raw rice 2 cups
  • Tur dal / Thuvaram paruppu 2 tb spoons
  • Mustard seeds 1 tea spoon, Urad dal 1 tea spoon
  • green chillies chopped 3
  • curry leaves
  • oil 2 tb spoons
  • Asafoetida powder 1/2 tea spoon
  • turmeric powder a pinch
  • salt to taste

How to make Pappu Rotta

  1. Wash the rice and soak it in water for 2 hours. Grind it to very fine batter adding salt and water. Transfer the batter to a bowl.
  2. Wash the mixie jar with 3 cups of water and transfer the water to a pan. Heat the pan and keep stirring the water. When it becomes like a porridge add it to the bowl that has the batter and mix well.
  3. Boil or pressure cook the tur dal with water. They should be boiled but firm and not mushy. Keep it aside.
  4. Now heat a dosa tawa and make dosas out of this batter as we make rawa dosa. Let the batter be in the consistency of milk shake. In no time the dosas get cooked.
  5. Now with a knife chop the dosa in to small pieces and keep aside. Heat a pan with oil. Do the tempering with mustard seeds and urad dal.
  6. Once the dal becomes brown add the green chillies, turmeric powder, asafoetida powder and stir well. Now add the boiled tur dal with half cup of water to the pan and mix.
  7. Transfer the dosa pieces to the pan and toss well. The fantastic breakfast is ready to serve with any chutney.

My Tip:

To make it healthier, with thur dal some sprouts could be added
