  • 500 gms whole green moong
  • 2 tbsp urad dal
  • 2 tbsp rice
  • 3 - 4 green chili chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger chopped finely
  • 1 no. onion chopped
  • salt to taste
  • oil for drizzling over the dosa


Preparing the Pesarattu Dosa Batter

  • Soak the whole green moong dal, urad dal and rice overnight in sufficient water.
  • Discard the water and add fresh water in the morning. 
  • Grind them along with green chili, ginger, and onion to make a smooth paste. This takes some time to grind. 
  • Add salt and mix well. There is no need to keep this batter for fermentation like the other dosa batters. You can make this dosa instantly.
  • Heat a tawa and spread the dosa batter in a circular motion. Drizzle some oil and cook till the back side is brown in color. Turn over, cook till done.
  • Serve hot with any chutney of your choice.



  • I have not added the soaking time in the total time.
  • Either use the grinder, mixie or blender to grind the batter.
  • You can also add cumin seeds, methi seeds, garlic, and more green chili too.
  • Cook on medium low heat for perfect dosas. If you cook on high heat, it will burn and not be cooked thoroughly.
  • You can top with grated coconut, grated ginger, and coriander leaves as well.
  • If you are planning to make this dosa at a later time, you can store in the refrigerator immediately after making the batter.
