Pesarattu Dosa

Both Ammas (Amma and MIL) use to prepare a variety of dosa with yellow moong dal and boiled rice. I never realized that was a modified version of pesarattu. One of my Telugu friends shared this pesarattu recipe, made with green moong dal. Tried Pesarattu with moong dal, after tasting this dosa we loved it, and added this dosa in our breakfast menu.
