When you are in Andhra Pradesh, you must try their famous whole green moong dosas, known as Pesarattu. On the other hand, you can try it right away in your own kitchen!


These delicious green gram dosas include a little bit of rice for crispness, as well as green chillies and ginger for an elegant flavour.


They are usually filled with sautéed onions, but some people like to use raw onions and coriander, instead. Yet others like to serve it as Special Pesarattu, stuffed with delicious rava upma!


Get the base recipe right, and the rest is left to your imagination.
