 Pesarattu (Spicy Onion Pancakes) 
  • 1/2 kg whole green gram (moong)
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Chopped ginger
  • 4 Green chillies
  • 2 Sliced onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin powder
  • 1/2 bunch Chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 cup Oil
  • Salt (As per taste)
Soak moong dal (green gram) in water for 2-3 hours. Drain all but one cup water and grind to a paste with ginger, salt and green chillies. Add enough water to make a thick batter, mix well. Add cumin powder and coriander leaves to the chopped onion and keep aside.

Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, pour one ladle of the batter into the frying pan and spread out like a thin pancake. Pour tsp oil around the edges and cook the pancake on medium heat.

Sprinkle some of the chopped onion mixture in the middle of the pancake and spread evenly. When the pesarattu is well cooked, add more oil and fry till edges are crisp. Fold in half and take off flame. Repeat for rest of the batter.

Serve hot with sambhar, pickle or chutney.
