Directions: Andhra Style Upma Pesarattu Recipe
STEP 1.Add 1 cup washed and soaked whole green moong dal into the tall jar ofthe mixer grinder, 1 tbsp washed raw rice, 1 inch ginger chopped and 3 green chillies chopped. Add a little water and grind to make a semi thick smooth batter.
STEP 2.Transfer the batter to a mixing bowl and add 1 finely chopped onion,a few sprigs of chopped coriander leaves and salt to taste and mix to combine well. Keep aside.
STEP 3.For the upma, in a preheated pan add 1 tsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp splitwhite urad dal. Saute till mustard crackles and dal turns golden and crisp.
STEP 4.Then add 1 finely chopped onion, 1 inch ginger finely chopped, 2 green chillies finely chopped. Saute onions on medium till they are soft and light pink.
STEP 5.Add 1 tomato chopped and saute for less than a minute.
