Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe

Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe is a fusion recipe where a pesarattu is made with cheese and veggies topping. This pesarattu is prepared with moong beans. Pesarattu is made without urad dal that is usually a must in South Indian dosa batter. Pesarattu is one of the popular breakfasts of Andhra and is served with Allam Pachadi | Ginger Chutney Recipe.

This Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe is a wonderful twist to the regular pesarattu breakfast with yummy shredded mozzarella cheese but also healthy with a good load of veggies topped on it, along with a bit of paneer and oats.

Prepare the batter in the form of pancakes for breakfast and if you want to pack ot away for short break or lunch for kids school, you can choose to make thinner crepes and prepare wraps with the vegetable filling inside.

The original flavour of Pesarattu compliments the recipe very well.

Directions for Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe

  1. To begin making Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe, prep all the ingredients and prepare pesarattu first.

  2. For the pesarattu, the first thing that needs to be done is soaking the green moong beans and raw rice separately in enough water for about 6-7 hours or overnight. The fenugreek seeds should be soaked with the raw rice.

  3. While grinding, wash the Moong beans and rice thoroughly and drain. 

  4. In a mixer grinder, dry grind the oats to a powder and keep it separately until required.

  5. Then, grind together the moong, green chillies and ginger using sufficient water to get a fine paste. Grind the rice grains and fenugreek seeds in the same manner. 

  6. Mix together the oats powder and the two batters adding salt to taste. Adjust consistency of batter like that of dosa batter. 

  7. Add chopped fresh coriander to this batter. 

  8. To make the topping, Start with finely chopping the vegetables. Crush the paneer coarsely with fingers. Grate cheese as per your taste and preference.

  9. In a bowl, mix together the chopped vegetables, paneer, coriander, salt and mixed herbs. 

  10. In another bowl, mix together both the sauces, tomato ketchup and red chilli sauces.

  11. Heat a pancake pan and grease with homemade ghee. 

  12. Spread the batter over each hollow, smear little ghee on top and cover and cook. (Other option is to use a normal griddle and spread batter in a way to get small pancakes.)

  13. When one side is done, flip over and cook on the other side till crisp. 

  14. Remove the batch of pancakes on a plate with the first cooked side at the bottom. 

  15. Apply 1 tablespoon of sauce on each of them and spread about 2 heaped teaspoons of mixed vegetable mixture on each. 

  16. Grate cheese on top and transfer again to the pan to cook on low heat till the cheese melts. 

To prepare Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Wraps
  1. For the wrap (better option for tiffins), spread the pesarattu batter on a hot greased griddle, as you would do a dosa. 

  2. When cooked on one side, flip and cook on other side till done. 

  3. Now flip again, apply the sauce on the entire dosa and spread the vegetable topping mixture in the centre. 

  4. Grate some cheese on top. Immediately roll dosa from both sides covering the filling to make a wrap. 

  5. For both the pizza and the wrap, the pesarattu should be made a little thick and not too thin. 

  6. Serve Andhra Cheese Vegetables Pesarattu Recipe with Allam Pachadi for breakfast.
