Pesarattu Upma

We have started yet another week for Buffet on table under the theme of Breakfast from countries. My choice for the first day is from my home land. Pesarattu- upma is a traditional breakfast of Andhra Pradesh. This is a whole moong dosa which is stuffed with upma and served with allam pachadi. Usually dosas are served with coconut chutney right, but this particular dosa is served with allam pachadi. Because this dosa is a protein rich and heavy meal because it is stuffed with upma. Allam pachadi makes this heavy meal in to easy digest and delicious, so allam pachadi make a perfect combination with pesarattu- upma. Pesarattu and upma are two different dishes where upma can be eaten alone, but I never imagine pesarattu with out upma. But some times my husband enjoys pesarattu alone with coconut chutney any way.....

Though pesarattu is made very often at home, I discovered this combo only few years ago when my friend invited me home for breakfast. Though I can eat upma & pesarattu separately, it does taste great when served together.
