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.
SOAKING TIME : 5 HOURS OR OVERNIGHT

Grind them to a fine paste.
Heat a dosa tawa,pour a laddle of green gram batter (pesarattu batter) and spread evenly in a circular motion.Drizzle little oil and cook both sides well.
Heat another pan and saute the chopped onion for a minute with few drops of oil and switch off the flame.Add 1/4 tsp of red chilly powder and mix well.

TAKE CARE TIPS
If you dont have that much time to soak the dhal or you forgot to soak them overnight then soak them in hot water and place them in a casserole or a flask for an hour.
