Pesara garelu is the most popular snack in A.P.in most of the Festivals in AP particularly in Telangana Region the garelu is common snack .I like to eat the garelu very much.
Splitted green moong dal (pottu pesara pappu)-2cups
Green chillies - 5 to 6
small chopped onion-1
Ginger -small piece
curry leaves -few
oil for frying
soak moon dal atleast 4 to 5 hours.wash the dal , remove half of the skin and drain them for at least 30 mins.
The skin of moong dal give crunchiness.so don't remove total skin.
take 1/2cup soaked dal and put aside.now grind the remaining moong dal, green chillies,ginger and salt into paste.don't grind into fine paste.just crush the moong dal.u can also grind the moong dal and green chillies seperately.then u can add green chilly paste according to your taste.
mean while heat the oil in kadai.now add curry leaves coriander leaves,spring onions and soaked dal to the paste.If oil heat wet your hand take small ball size batter press it on left hand with right hand and put a whole in the middle(optional).
make 4 or 5 ,drop them in oil and fry at medium flame.if u won't get with hand,do it on wet cloth which is spread on platform.
fry them till they turn brown color.take the garelu into plate and serve them hot then the garelu will very crispy.eat with ghee ,butter or any chutny. eat with onion also tasty.
can also add spinach leaves it will give more crispy.
after some time the garelu will loss crispiness.then press with hand at edge of the gare and again fry them.it will more crispy and it will be good upto 2 days.
