Pesarettu (பெசரெட்டு)

Pesarettu or Moong dal dosa is a tangy and interesting taste dosa that tastes best when served hot with tomato chutney. It makes for a nice evening tiffin. This recipe will make 10 around dosas. I got this recipe from my mom and I love when she makes it. It is very colorful, filling and healthy food.. This dish is from the Andhra State and can also be made with whole green gram (whole moong dal).
