When you think of famous dishes from Andhra, Pesarattu surely comes to mind. At hotels, it is usually served with Upma, Allam Pachadi (Ginger Chutney) and Coconut Chutney. Everybody at home loves Pesarattu and whenever she makes it, she also makes Upma as Daddy loves that combo.
When I started making it at my own kitchen, I normally never bother about making Upma, but you should try it if you want to try the authentic Andhra combo.
To make the Pesarattu, we need the following,
For the batter
Whole Moong Dal – 2 cups
Raw Rice – ½ cup
Green chillies – 3
Red Chillies – 2
Salt as required.
Jeera as required
Method to prepare:
Soak the Moong Dal and Rice for 3 – 4 hrs separately.
Grind it with Red chillies and Green Chillies into a smooth paste.
Heat a pan, add a spoon of Oil. Once the pan is hot, pour a spoonful of batter.
It has to be spread very thinly as dosas. Sprinkle sautéed Onions and Jeera on top.
Add little ghee for better taste.
