  • After 5 hours strain the water, clean once with water and blend in blender till it becomes a smooth batter.(add a little water if necessary)
  • There is no need to ferment this batter. This batter can be kept in fridge for one day only.More than one day the taste may not be good.In  winter season it can stay 2 days.Usually this dosa is made with freshly ground batter.

Onion pieces should not burn,so you have to do this process in medium flame only.
  • Now turn this dosa into second side,and fry few min. 
  • Then turn this dosa again and fold it into half and take into serving plate.
  • Now Serve hot pesarattu with ginger chutney.or coconut chutney
  • Usually Pesarattu - Upma is wonderful combination with ginger chutney.And a cup of coffee.Then heaven is in your feet.
