ody Pesarattu


One of my Andra friend shared this recipe to me long time back.I hesitate to try because i thought it wont taste good,i am wrong when i taste it first time. I bored of having same plain dosa,masala dosa and onion dosa,so i tried this recipe.First time ,dosa consistency is not correct,so it came out as uthappam.After trying four or five times,i caught the right consistency for a crispy dosa. This dosa taste little blind,but having it with some spicy red chutney make this dosa more yummier. This time i tried this dosa with peanut chutney.It is good too.


Green gram dhal - 1 cup
Idli rice - one fist
Green chilli - 6 no
Jeera - 1 1/2 tbsp
Ginger - 1 inch
Onion - 1 big
Coriander leaves- 3 stem

* Soak dhal and rice together for 4 hours.
* chop green chilli  and ginger into small small pieces.
* Chop onion into very small pieces.
* Chop coriander leaves.

After soaking for 4 hour,grind green gram dhal,green chilli,jeera,ginger and enough salt.Add less water.Grind it in cocnsistency of dosa batter but it should be little thick coarse paste.Heat dosa tava,pour the batter in center and spread it in circle towards out. Sprinkle onion , corainder leaves and finally chopped green chilli(optional if you are serving for kids).Sprinkle some oil on top and close it with a lid.Let it get cooked for 2 min and remove the lid.Cook the dosa for some more minute till the dosa is crispier.Once done,fold it and transfer to a plate.Serve with hot red chutney or ginger chutney.

Notes :
     This dosa will be heavy if we have more than two dosa. We can prepare this dosa with little variation like sprinkling idli podi on top and even apply spicy chutney as a layer and serve.Generally in andra they serve this with upma stuffing(Like masala in masala dosa).
