Hi Pesarattu looks perfect. Great pics..Why is it always served with upma? Can we omit the upma? My husband loves this, and I have never been able to make good pesarattu. It always gets sticky. I will surely try this. Already have the allam pacchadi that I prepared and stored in the fridge:-)

Gorgeous color on the pesarattu's I used to make it with just the moong dal initially, only after a call from mom did I realize that it needed some rice too :) The allam pachadi combo reminds me of andhra mess meals, yummy :)
