Pesarattu Upma/MLA pesarattu/ Moong dal dosa

Pesarattu is famous break fast in AP,India.It tastes great and healthy.pesarattu is prepared with moong dal(pesallu in telugu)batter.topping with onion,ginger.and also upmais called MLA pesarattu.t.Pesarattu tastes well when served with ginger chutney.

whole moong dal-2 cups
Rice-1 or 1/2 cup (more rice will give more crispy dosa)
green chilly-5 to 6
ginger-small piece
cumin seeds -1tsp
salt to taste
for topping:
 1 onion chopped
 1 tsp cumin seeds
 small piece ginger fine chopped
 chopped coriander(optional)
For MLA pesarattu:
 1 cup upma
 1 tsp roasted cashew nuts(optional)
 soak moong dal and rice about 9 to 10 hrs.then wash and drain them.
In mixie or grinder add moong dal,rice, cumin seeds,green chilly,ginger,salt.grind it into smooth batter by adding the few water.
now for topping heat a frying pan add 1 tsp oil when it heat add chopped onion,ginger and cumin seeds,add chopped coriander leaves(optional).
fry them till onion turns into light golden color.
and  prepare the upma for MLA pesarattu.
now heat pan on medium heat to make pesarattu.grease it with little oil.pour a ladle full of batter on pan
and spread it into thin round layer.sprinkle little oil over edges.
put 2tsp of  upma in middle of dosa and  sprinkle fried onion mixture and roasted cashew nuts around the upma.If you want plain pesarattu don't put upma on top of the pesarattu.just sprinkle onions.
cover the pesarattu with lid ,cook about 5 min on medium flame.then fold it .

take it into a plate.that's it.pesarattu is ready to have.
serve hot with ginger chutney or coconut chutney or pea nut chutney and sambar also taste good. I like to eat with ginger chutney.
