Pesarattu Recipe – Ingredients Required

Dal and rice: Whole green moong is used to make pesarattu. The dal is soaked for 6-8 hours. You can also soak it overnight if you plan to make it for breakfast. I had soaked it overnight. Other than dal, rice is also soaked and used to make the dal dosa. I have used idli rice to make dal dosa. You can sue the regular rice or you can completely omit the rice, although it makes the dosa crispier.

Ginger, green chilies: These are the flavoring agents. These help to make the dal dosa crispy and toothsome. You can increase or decrease the quantity as per your liking.

Spices: Salt and cumin seeds have been used in the dal dosa recipe.

Ghee: I have used ghee to toast the dosa. You can also use oil. Ghee gives a much better texture and flavor.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
