Pesarattu Recipe | How to grind Pesarattu Batter | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe


Hi Supermoms,

'Attu' means Dosai in Telugu language and Pesarattu means a dosai made using the moong beans. Whole green moong beans are soaked and ground to make the pesarattu batter. It makes for a wholesome meal and is made weekly in many South Indian homes.  I have earlier shared the basic pesarattu recipe with you all. 

Some months back my mother shared that she enjoyed a pesarattu during her visit to Puttaparthi ( Andhra Pradesh, India) in her friend Gayatri's house and it was so tasty and much different from the one I make. She told me that she got the recipe from Gayatri so that she could share with me . She insisted that I try this recipe and also share it with all of you.

At first, I was doubtful about the quantity of cloves in the pesarattu recipe. I asked her if the measurements she had given me is right. But my mother reassured that it woud work superbly and I should simply try it. 

As you would have already guessed, the Pesarattu turned out super tasty and I was so thrilled by the freshness of the pesarattu batter and the newly infused flavour of clove. I can't thank my mother and her friend enough. So grateful. 

A must try !!
