Sprouts Pesarattu

I had lots of sprouted moong and wanted to use it in the main course for dinner today and amma gave this idea of pesarattu with sprouts. Because consistency did not work out, I mixed some rava to it and it came out well.


1. Sprouted green gram – 2 cups
2. Rava/ Sooji – 1 cup
3. Onion – 1
4. Green chilies – 2
5. Ginger – 2″ piece
6. Salt to taste
7. Oil as required
8. Coriander chopped – 2 tbsp


Step 1: In a mixer jar take sprouts, green chilies, onion, ginger and grind well into thin batter.

Step 2: To the batter add rava, salt, chopped coriander and mix well. Leave it for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Heat griddle or a dosa pan and grease it with some oil. Pour a ladle full of batter and spread it with the back of the ladle into a medium sized circle.

Step 4: Drizzle little oil around it and cover it with a lid. Simmer the heat and wait until the bottom side browns.
Step 5: Flip the pesarattu delicately, drizzle oil if required and cook it uncovered for 1 minute.

Step 6: Serve hot with coconut chutney or coriander chutney. Actually it is flavorful and tasty even without any side dish.
