Andhra MLA Pesarattu

For the Batter:
Green Moong Dhal - 1 Cup
Rice - 1/2 Cup (Increase or decrease depending upon the crispy you required.)
Green Chilli -2
Ginger - 2 small pieces
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 2 small pieces
Salt - as required
For Garnishing:
Ginger - 2 tbsp grated
Green Chilli - 2 chillies finely chopped
Chopped onion - 1/2 onion finely chopped
For Upma:
Please check the upma recipe here. I have used the vegetable rava upma for this. You can also use simple rava upma without adding any vegetables.
1. Soak the green moong dhal and rice for at least 6 hours. 
2. Then grind the soaked green gram and rice with green chillies, ginger, salt, jeera and onions by adding little by little water till you get a smooth dosa batter consistency. 
3. Now take a nonstick pan, heat it and pour a ladle of  batter in the middle and spread it evenly.
4. Then flatten the extra batter with a spatula and allow it to cook evenly.
5. Sprinkle the chopped onions, ginger and green chilli mixture on top of it. 
6. Apply oil to the edges and fry them. Once it is cooked turn it to the other side and allow it to cook for a minute. 
7. That's when the pesarattu is ready. When you stuff the upma in the pesarattu it becomes MLA Pesarattu.
Yummy and crispy MLA Pesarattu is ready to serve :) It goes well with Coconut Chutney and Allam(Ginger) Chutney.
