Pesarattu Recipe / Green Gram Dosai Recipe

I was very surprised that we in Tamilnadu are not preparing dosa based on green gram, while it is a very popular recipe in Andhra. Everyone in my family loved it and this is definitely going to be a regular in my kitchen henceforth. Moreover this is a very apt dish for summer as it helps to beat the heat.
In Telugu Peasr means green gram and rattu means dsoai. So that green gram dosai is called pesarattu in Telugu.
