PESARATTU / GREEN MOONG DOSA

Photobucket

MAKES:25-30 dosas

INGREDIENTS:

Green Gram split/whole Moong Dal-----------3 cups of standard US measuring cup

Raw rice------------------------------------------1/2 cup of standard measuring cup

Ginger-------------------------------------------2 inch piece

Cumin seeds------------------------------------1 tbp

Green chillies-----------------------------------8-10 depending on their spice level

DIRECTIONS:

1.Soak green gram/moong dal,rice in water for minimum of 6-8 hrs.Soak overnight and grind in the morning just before making them.

2.Donot remove the green outer skin.It tastes good with it only.

3.After enough soaking drain out the water and grind the soaked dal+rice with some ginger,cumin seeds,green chillies in portions in a mixer.

4.If u grind in a wet grinder the dosas will be too thick.So i grind in a mixer/blender.

5.Transfer to a bowl and add salt and start making just as dosas.

6.Can place chopped onions,green chillies on the dosa once spead out on the pan.Fry witha tsp of ghee.

7.This one goes especially well with coconut and ginger chutney.Nothing can beat it...........
