Pesarattu - MLA  పెసల పెసరట్టు - Green Gram Dosa - Telugu Recipes

MLA Pesarattu gets its name because Upma is hidden inside. The story goes that MLA's generally have guests from their constituency. When they accompany them into the canteen the bearer orders by shouting loudly "Two Pesarattu - One for MLA". The cook inside sends one Pesarattu with Upma hidden inside and the other without Upma. While chatting & eating with his visitor the MLA coyly blames the cook for inadvertently sending Upma too, though the visitor can easily make it out that he is lying. In short MLA Pesarattu is symbolic indicating that these public representatives corner more than what meets the common man's eye, even in a simple Breakfast recipe Pesarattu.
