Moong dal / Green Gram - 3 cups
Green chillies - 3 or 4
Ginger - 1 inch
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves a little chopped (optional)
Soak the moong dal/green gram in water overnight or about 6 to 7 hours.
In the morning, drain the water and add all the other ingredients to the dal and blend in a mixer to form a smooth batter. The batter should not be too runny or thin. It should be in idly/dosa batter consistency.
Heat a tawa and add a little oil and spread with a half cut onion. Once the pan turns hot, pour a ladle of batter in the middle and spread in a clockwise/anticlockwise motion in circles, starting from the center to the corners of the pan. You can add chopped onions on top if you like. Drizzle some oil on the corners.
After about a minute, flip the pesarattu with the help of a flat spoon. Cook for one more minute.
Serve with yoghurt/curd and any chutney of your choice.
