How to make Pesarattu Upma

  1. Making Batter for Pesarattu:
  2. Wash and soak moong dal and raw rice in enough water for 4-5 hours. After 4-5 hours, drain the water and grind soaked moong dal & raw rice by adding green chilies and chopped ginger. Make a smooth batter by adding water.
  3. Remove the contents into a wide bowl and add enough water until you get pouring batter consistency (similar to pancake batter). Add salt and combine well. Set this aside by covering with a lid.
  4. Making the Upma:
  5. In a kadai/skillet add oil and when it heats up add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. When these starts to crackle add dry red chili and curry leaves. When the curry leaves start to change color, add sliced onions and green chilies.
  6. Fry until onions turn translucent.
  7. Now add water and salt. Bring this boil and reduce the flame to medium. Let the water gets reduced to 2/3rd consistency.
  8. Slowly by continuously stirring the water, add in semolina. Reduce the flame and cook till the mixture gets thickened like you see in the picture. Turn off the flame and set aside.
  9. Assembling Pesarattu Upma:
  10. Keep all the filling ingredients and upma ready nearby.
  11. Heat a pan and rub it with half cut onion. When the pan is hot enough, take a ladle full of batter and spread it on the pan in clock wise direction to form a full circle.
  12. Leave the oil from the sides of the pesarattu. When the pesarattu starts to release from the sides, spread generous amount of chopped onions, ginger, cumin and green chili. Top with a layer of upma and fold it into half.
  13. Roast it on medium flame until the outer side turn little crisp. Remove it on to a serving plate and serve hot.
  14. Sserve pesarattu upma with peanut chutney and ginger pickle or anything chutney/pickle of your choice.
