Moong is a blessing from Mother Nature, and this powerhouse of nutrients only gets more potent when sprouted! Here, we have prepared a traditional snack of Andhra Pradesh, the Pesarattu Dosa, using sprouted moong with a little besan for binding, instead of the usual batter of moong dal and rice. Spiced with green chllies and ginger, this Moong Sprouts Pesarattu gets all the more toothsome with the addition of onions. While in the traditional version, the dosas are topped with finely chopped onions, it can be a bit cumbersome to eat these dosas without the onions spilling out unless you are used to it. So, in this recipe we have mixed the onions into the batter itself, making it easier to prepare and serve while retaining the same exciting flavour.
