Pesarattu

#Pesarattu #GreenGramPancake : This is an Andhra special tiffin prepared from green gram. The green gram is the best source of protein for vegetarians and also rich in fiber content. The mineral potassium is high in this legume and that helps to maintain the blood pressure. This legume is easily digestible and suitable for both children as well as old people.
Generally the Vitamin B is present at the outer layer just below the skin of a grain. When the skin is removed those important nutrients will be lost. Here green gram with skin has been used which keeps Vitamin B intact.
Pesarattu is an instant breakfast. It requires approximately an hour to soak the green gram.
Here let us see the method of preparing pesarattu.
Can make 5 to 6 pesarattu approximately.
