Andhra Pesarattu | Whole Moong Dal Dosa | Indian Breakfast Recipe

pesarattu dosa

Pesarattu is one of Andhra's delicacies which is made with moong dal and no urad dal is added to it.It is nutritious and high in fibre. While searching i read that this dosa is served along with upma in restaurants there but i just serve with coconut chutney.Since it has more fibre it will be hard to eat more that two and make us feel full in stomach. Fermentation is not required for this dosa variety you directly make dosa once you ground the batter only the soaking time. Do try this healthy dosa with mung beans.
