Pesarattu(Moong Dal Dosa) with Upma

You will need:
For the Pesarattu: Makes 8-9 dosas

Cup Whole green Moong, soaked overnight
3 tbsp Rice flour
6 Green chillies

For the upma:
2 tbsp Oil
tsp Mustard seeds
tsp Urad Dal
tsp Chana Dal
cup onion, chopped
Few curry leaves
cup Semolina, dry roasted
1 cup Hot water
Salt to taste

Pesarattu Toppings: Chopped onions, chopped cilantro

Prepare the Batter: Grind the soaked moong dal and green chillies with little water to a smooth paste. Stir in the rice flour and salt.

Prepare the Upma: Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard and when it begins to splutter, add the urad and chana dals. Add the curry leaves and chopped onion. Saute till onion is soft. Pour the hot water and bring to a boil. When the water begins to boil slowly add the roasted semolina while stirring to avoid lumps. Turn heat to low and cook covered for 3 minutes. Add salt. Remove from heat.

To make the Pesarattu: Oil a hot non-stick pan. Wipe the oil with a paper towel. Pour a ladle of batter in the centre and swirl clockwise with the ladle. Drizzle a tsp of oil on top. Top with chopped onions and cilantro.

Cook for 2 minutes and then flip, cook for another 15 seconds. Flip over and place two tablespoons of upma on one half of the dosa. Close the other half over the upma. Remove from heat.

Before making another dosa, wipe the pan with the paper towel. If the pan is oily, then its hard to swirl the batter. We had our Pesarattus with Garlic chutney.
