Pesarattu is my husband's favorite breakfast and the combination is with allam chutney. Many people from Andhra love this. Recipe as follows.



1. Greengram - 1 cup
2. Onions    -1
3. Green Chilies - 3
4.Ginger - Small piece
5. Salt - To taste


1. Soak green-gram whole night. Grind it with salt and few water. Don't make it too watery or too thick. Add chopped onions, chopped green chilies, Copped ginger in to the batter and mix well.Take a Nonstick pan. When it became hot,  sprinkle water on the pan when it starts making noise. Take a ladle of batter spread it in a circle with out lumps.


2.Take a spoon oil and spread at edges.


3.Cook till the Dosa turns brown, crispy.Turn the Dosa and cook for a minute. Remove the Dosa on pan and serve with Ginger chutney.
