 Ingredients Quantity
ALCO Cumin Powder 1 tbsp.
Green chili peppers 5
Uncooked white rice 1 cup
Whole green lentils 2 cups
Ginger root (peeled) 1 (1/2 inch)
Onion (chopped) 6 tbsp. (Optional)
Salt As needed
Cooking spray As needed



  1. Place the lentils and rice into a large container and cover with several inches of cool water; let stand 4 hours to overnight.
  2. Blend the lentils, rice, green chili peppers, and ginger together into a smooth paste using a blender or food processor. Stir the ALCO Cumin Powder and salt into the paste.
  3. Prepare a flat griddle (tawa) or large, flat-bottomed skillet and place over medium-low heat. Ladle the lentil batter onto the middle of the heated surface and spread into a thin circle using the back of the ladle. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of onions and press the onions onto the pesarattu using your ladle or spatula. Cook for a few minutes and flip over to the other side. Cook a few more minutes, transfer to a plate and serve immediately. Dosas are best eaten hot and crispy right off the tawa.
