Pesarattu (Mung Rice Dosa)

Andhra Pesarattu
This is a dosa/crepe well known as Pesarattu in Andhra Pradesh.  A crisp dosa made of whole Mung Bean and rice.

Mung/Whole Green Gram - 1 cup
Medium Grain Rice or Idli Rice - 1 cup

How to cook Andhra Pesarattu Dosa:
1. Wash rice and mung with water and soak them together for 5 - 6 hours.
2. Grind soaked rice and mung into a fine paste.  Batter consistency is same as masala dosa.  Add salt and ferment it overnight.
3. Heat a pan and spread a ladle full of batter into a thin circular dosa.  Drizzle little oil and roast both sides till crisp.  Serve hot Mung Pesrattu with Coconut Chutney and/or Potato Bhaji.
