Ingredients:

    • ·Whole Green Gram – 1 Cup
    • ·Raw Rice – 1/2Cup
    • ·Green Chillies – 16
    • ·Ginger – 1/4”Piece
    • ·Cumin Seeds – 1tbsp
    • ·Oil for Frying
    • ·Chopped Onions for Topping
    • ·Upma for Serving


    (Online Conversion utility to convert Gms to Cups & Temperatures etc)

    Preparations:

    Wash and soak green gram and raw rice in two separate bowlsfor 4 to 6 hours. Grind the dal and rice separately in a mixer grinder or wet grinder and mix them well. Add required salt to the batter and keep it aside for fermenting. Place this bowl in a big plate so that after fermenting if the batter overflows it falls into the plate which can be mixed back into the batter. Wash, clean and grind green chillies, ginger along with cumin seeds into a coarse paste. Mix this paste into the batter and add water if required to get the right consistency.

    Peel the onions and chop them finely into small pieces.

    Method:

    Heat the griddle. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the centre of the griddle.

    Immediately spread the batter in circular motion so that it spreads evenly on the griddle. Add oil all over the Attu and spread with the flat spatula. The Attu comes out crispy if you spread the batter in thin layer. Immediately spread the chopped onions on to the Attu and press with the spatula so that they stick to the spread batter. After few minutes the Attu starts leaving the griddle. Then slowly remove the Attu and fold it into half. Place this Pesarattu into a serving plate and serve hot with ginger chutney and coconut chutney. This is the tasty UllipayaPesarattu which is a famous Attu in Andhra Pradesh.

    Variation:

    Heat the griddle. Take a ladle full of batter and pour it in the centre of the griddle.

    Immediately spread the batter in circular motion so that it spreads evenly on the griddle. Add oil all over the Attu and spread with the flat spatula. When the Attu is done turn it and fry on the other side too. There is no need to add oil for frying the Attu on the other side.When the Attu is crispy on the other side turn it again. Place a ladle full of Upma in the centre of the Attu and fold it twice as shown in the movie clip. This Attu is called as Pesarattu-upma or Upma-Pesarattu in Andhra Pradesh. It is also known as MLA-Pesarattu.

    Points to Notice:

    This pesarattu is made with whole green gram preferably. It can also be made with split and husked green gram, but the pesarattu made with whole green gram tastes better. Rice is added to bring crispness in the pesarattu.

    Do not forget to ferment the batter for at least 5 to 6 hours for better results. However if you require to make these pesarattlu in a hurry just wash the gram and grind with water to make attlu.

    If one wants soft attlu avoid adding rice in the preparation—they also taste good.

    Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Gayatri Amma or Sister (Which is correct I dont know.),

    Namaskar.... Namaskar....

    I dont know who are you... But you are helping me a lot through your website. I am following your recipe daily.

    I am RAVEENDRAN KRISHNASAMY living in New York, USA. I belong to remote village of Tamil Nadu. My mother tongue is Telugu. But we dont know to read and write Telugu.

    Here (New York) I am staying with my roommates. Now I became expert in cooking by following your recipe. Thank you so much for your kind help.

    Today I ground flour for pesarattu. I kept it for fermentation. The thing is I added more salt. I dont know how to balance the excess salt. Kinly help me. Because in Tamil Nadu there is no pesarattu concepts. This is the first time I am preparing Pesarattu.

    Divine power always bless u and ur people to lead a very comfortable life with Good Health, Longer Life, Sufficient Wealth, Well Recognition and Wisdom.

    Raveendran Garu,

    Thanks for the kind words and blessings.

    Fermentation brings in a bit of sourness which would partially nullify the salt in the batter. Therefore gauge for the excess salt likely to be present and grind pesarapappu (deshusked green gram) and add to the mixture. Let the batter ferment so as to enjoy your pesarattus.

    Namaste Smt Gayatri Garu,

    Baha unnara...?

    Today I was invited to participate a Sathsangam here at NY. All participants should bring a vegetarian item for lunch.

    I prepared Pesarattu and Allam Chutney. All the participants complimented and prized me.

    I politely told them that all compliments should go to unknown face Gayatri Amma; Normally Amma only can provide nice and tasty food; I followed her words. thats all.
    Gayatri garu only prepared these pesarattu and allam chutney in remote. I am a tool thats all.

    I felt so happy. Why I dont know I want to share this incident to you.

    Thanks a lot for your kind guidance.

    Divine power always bless u and ur people to lead a very comfortable life with Good Health, Longer Life, Sufficient Wealth, Well Recognition and Wisdom.

    I have an LG Combi 20 Ltrs Microwave which does not have "Convection mode" option. Please advice me how to make my Microwave bake buns, breads,buscuits perfectly. So far I have been using the Microwave to bake cakes only and for cooking few rice items and for reheating purposes. I have watched your videos showing baking Pav, bread and am very much interested in trying the same in my Microwave. Please reply with your valuable suggestions..............
