Green gram dosa is a traditional South Indian dish, also known as pesarattu. It hails from the state of Andra Pradesh and it can be served as a breakfast dish or as an evening snack.

Green gram dosa is made of whole green moong beans, which are first soaked and then ground. It is then made into round-shaped dosas, usually served with chutney or sagu. Conventionally, it is also served with upma sometimes.

Green gram dosa with the help of other elements attains a unique mint green colour, which tastes as delicious as it looks. It is filled with a special flavour of coriander leaves, onions and rice flour.
