Pesarattu Dosai

pesarattu Pesarattu Dosai or Green gram Dosai is a popular breakfast recipe of Andhra pradesh.A spicy dosai that goes well with only spicy chutney.Today I have made it more spicy by stuffing with some sauteed onions mixed with red chilly powder.Some use raw onions and coriander leaves instead of sauteed onions.Also they are served with upma and ginger chutney which I have not tried yet. Pesarttu Dosai is a highly nutritious dosai and very filling too.An instant dosai that can be made in a jiffy even for a group and you dont have to ferment the batter too.
