Pesarattu Dosai

This is something we make with moong dhall. I personally like this dosai. I follow the recipe which my MIL taught me. Here is the recipe I follow to make this dosai.


  1. Boiled rice - 1 cup
  2. Moong dhall - 2 cups
  3. Red chillies - 2
  4. Green chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  7. Curry leaves - few
  8. Sesame oil - 2 tsp
Soak rice, dhall and chillies for 2 hours. After 2 hours, grind it adding salt into a fine batter. Add curry leaves and asafoetida powder. Mix it well. When you are ready to make dosa, heat the skillet and spread a laddle full of batter into circle and sprinkle oil. Let it cook for 2 to 3 mts. under low flame. Turn it to other side and let it cook for another 2 mts. under low flame. Enjoy it hot with some chutney.
