Cucumber Pesarittu

Pesarittu /whole moong dosa is known as Pesarittu. I simply call this as Hesaru dosa.
I have tried this Pesarittu dosa in different ways. THIS time it is with cucumber. Dosa taste yummy and good for people who do not eat much vegetable. 


I have used whole moong, rava/semolina, little coconut, 1 small cucumber with its skin, pepper and curry leaves.
Pesarittu dosa is a healthy dosa which fills your tummy with good nutrients. Whole moong is filled with vitamins, minerals and is protein rich. Cucumber Pesarittu Dose is good for all age group and you do not feel hungry for a long time.
I used fresh Pesarittu batter for dosa. I did the grinding in mixi and added rava and curd to it. Gave a churn for 2 minutes, stopping for a few seconds in between. 
 as I grind it. I have added a cup of curd to add savoury to the batter.
