For Day 3  week 1 of BM #19, I have chosen Pesarattu which is a breeze to prepare. I was totally surprised to realize that I hadn't blogged about this typical Andhra breakfast so far . :) 

Pesarattu and Ginger Chutney along with Upma is  traditionally the combo but such elaborate affair never happens in our house. So a simple pesarattu and peanut chutney is all what we like!!

Ingredients - 

Ginger 1/2 inch
Green Chillies as needed
Coriander leaves / Cilantro
Salt as needed
Onions chopped 1/2 cup

For the Batter -
Moong Dal (either split or whole) 1 cup
Rice 3 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

Soak Moong Dal and rice for 3-4 hrs or overnight. [If using split moong dal a couple of hours is enough too]

Grind into a smooth batter adding as little water as possible.

Make a paste of green chillies, coriander leaves and ginger.

Add this paste to the batter and mix in some salt to taste.

On a hot griddle/tawa, pour ladleful of batter and by a brisk circular movement of the ladle, spread the batter into a thin circle.

Sprinkle finely chopped onions and spray as much oil as preferred.

Flip the pesarattu when the underside is lightly browned and let it cook on the secondsideaswell.

Remove the pesarattu and continue with the rest of the batter.

Serve it chutney of your choice for a nutritious and filling breakfast!
