A protein rich treat to vegetarian's. Not sure if this is called pesarattu in Andhra as I have never tasted pesarattu. However, this version of moongbean sprout dosa tasted delicious. Try it to know it :) .It can be classified under instant dosa category if you buy sprouted moong bean from supermarket ;)Though I am a big fan of sprouts I could have not eaten sprouts equivalent to 2 dosas........

My Variation : Added Semolina to dosa batter to make crispy dosas
Hesarumolake kaalu /Moongdal Sprouts : 2 cups
Ginger+garlic+greenchilli paste : 1/2 tsp
Corainder leaves : 10 lines
1.Grind all the ingredients above to make a smooth paste without using water or using very little water.
Onions : 1 medium (finely chopped)
Semolina: 3-4 tbsp
Jeerige/Cumin : 1/2 tsp
2. Add the above ingredients to ground paste and mix well. Add little water and adjust the consistency of the batter to normal dosa batter consistency.
3.Heat tava and smear oil. Ladle a spoonfull of batter over the tava and spread the batter with the back of the spoon. Close the lid and let it cook for 30 sec-1 min. Turn over and roast.
4. Enjoy protein filled dosas with your favorite chutney. We devoured it with coconut chutney.
Caution : To avoid any kind of disappointments please try with small quantity of sprouts. We liked it :)
Since Dosa can be eaten any time of the day this healthy dosa goes to WYF-breakfast event by EC and Cooking for Kids-Evening Snack hosted by Divya of Dil Se. Happy hosting both of you.
