Onion Pesarattu Dosa with Peanut Chutney

Onion Pesarattu Dosa with Peanut Chutney

Ingredients for dosa

Green moong dal 2 cups
Raw rice 2 tsp
Green chillies 4
Ginger 1 inch piece
Finely chopped onions 1 cup

How to make batter

Soak the moong dal for 3 to 4 hours with raw rice. Drain the water and grind the dal with chillies, ginger and salt.

Adding raw rice makes the dosas crispy, I prefer these dosas more than the regular ones because this does not need to be fermented. So you can soak the dal in the night and grind it in the morning, qucik and easy to make!


Take a pan and heat it when it gets hot put a ladle full of batter and spread it evenly on the pan.

Now sprinkle the onions on top of dosa when the batter is still wet and slowly using a spatula tap the onions on the dosa. Now drizzle some oil and once the dosa changes colour flip it over the other side and cook till done.


You can also add chopped green chillies and ginger on top of the dosa with onions.
If you dont want your dosas to be crispy you can avoid using raw rice.

In a small kadai, roast peanuts, onions, chillies and tamarind together.Once it cools off, grind them to make a fine paste with some water. Add water as per your desired consistency.

To make it more spicier you can use red chillies instead of green chillies.
