Pesarattu is a kind of dosa from regions of the Andhra Pradesh – Telangana states and quite popular in the South Indian restaurants in Hyderabad such as Chutneys. It is eaten both as a breakfast item and as a snack. Here, the pesarattu is stuffed with alu-chokha, a Bengali style preparation of mashed potatoes. Alu Chokha is a simple mashed potato dish from Bengal made using minimal ingredients. The mustard oil gives it the typical Bengali taste and the caramelised onions provide a boost of flavour. You can also add other ingredients like peas to the mash.
