Pesarattu with Upma

Posted by Geetha on December 10, 2008

Pesarattu is very famous item in Andra cuisine; it is more similar to dosai but made with Green moong dal. It is usually thin crispy with onions, green chili and ginger. You wouldn’t believe I never tasted Pesarattu until I made it. I have heard about Pesarattu through my husband and I have seen in premascook book blog and I liked it. I made it for first time and it came out very well.



Whole green moong dal – 1 cup

Green chili – 3

Ginger – 1’ inch

Cumin seeds – 1 tsp

Raw rice – 1 tsp

Salt – to taste

Oil – as necessary

For Topping: – (finely chopped)

Onion – 1

Green chili – 2

Ginger – 1 ‘inch

For upma:-

You can view my breakfast – Main coarse. The ingredients and method are same.

Gram Moong Dal batter

Green Moong Dal batter


Soak the moong dal, cumin seeds, green chili, ginger and rice in a bowl overnight or for 8 hours. Grind all these items by adding salt, water and make a fine batter. Heat a dosa pan and spread the batter like dosai and spread chopped onion, green chili and ginger on top and add ½ tsp of oil along edges of dosai.


Once the underside of the dosai turns golden brown, flip it to other side and add little oil to it. Once it is done, keep some upma in the center of the Pesarattu


fold it and serve hot with chutney or any gravy.
