The Oat and Green Moong Dal Pesarattu-Savory Lentil Crepe Recipe

The Oats Pesarattu recipe is inspired from the classic South Indian dish “Pesarattu”. Pesarattu is a crepe that is made from lentils and rice, but in this recipe I have used Saffola oats in the recipe, adding to the nutritive value. The addition of green chillies and ginger, along with finely chopped cabbage, makes this Pesarattu a favorite even with children. 

Serve the Oats Pesarattu along with jaggery and butter or along with Tomato Onion Chutney and Buttermilk for a wholesome breakfast or even a weeknight dinner.
