Pesarattu upma recipe, Upma pesarattu

Pesarattu upma is a delicious and healthy lentil crepe prepared with green gram dal and served with rava upma, by which it derives the name from. This is a traditional breakfast hailing from my place Andhra Pradesh and usually served with ginger chutney also know as allam chutney which I will post in the coming days. Now don’t ask why I dint post this recipe that we often make at homeπŸ™„I m still thinking of an answer πŸ€”, just kidding I dint know how did I even forget it?
how to make pesarattu upma

This pesarattu dosa whenever we make at home it is served with rava umpa/ sooji upma and allam chutney as they are made in heaven combo, but you can serve it without upma and call it just pesarattu as well, and that too taste great.

This recipe requires only soaking and no fermentation so it can be easily made at any time of the day, since its not fermented batter you need to cook it completely on tawa and serving with ginger chutney and adding ginger while grinding the batter will help in the digestion. Also I used rice flour to the batter to make it little crispy like hotel style, but you try soaking 1 tbsp of raw rice along with green gram dal and grind it together to get crispiness. So let’s get to the making!
