Soak the dals and rice in a bowl for about 2 hours.

Transfer coconut, ginger, curry leaves, chillies, and a handful of the soaked dal to the blender and grind them finely.

Transfer to a bowl and now grind the remaining dal to a smooth batter. Transfer the batter to the bowl and add salt and mix well.

Heat a spoon of oil in a wok and saute the onions for 2 minutes or so till the color starts changing. Switch off the flame, add a pinch of salt and the coriander leaves and mix well.

Heat the griddle, grease with a little oil and pour a ladle of batter to the griddle. Spread the batter on the skillet and cook on a low flame. Add a little oil to the edge.

When the pesarettu is cooked evenly serve with a chutney of your choice (Tomato/onion chutney, ginger chutney) or milagai podi.
