Pesarattu | Green Gram Dosa | Andhra Pesarattu Dosa

Pesarattu - a popular breakfast dish from Andhra.  It is a more healthier version of dosa as it is prepared with whole green gram.  Pesarattu with upma is a popular combo and is taken both at breakfast and as a snack.  It is typically served with ginger, coconut or onion chutney.

Now start your mornings with these protein-packed pesarattu dosas.

  • Ginger - 1-inch piece
  • Green chillies - 3Salt - As required

How To Prepare Pesarattu Dosa:
  • Soak green gram and rice together for 5 hours or overnight if possible. Grind to a smooth paste along with ginger, green chillies, salt and a little water.  The batter should be coarse and a bit thicker than the regular dosa batter.
  • Heat a tawa and pour a ladle of batter in the center and spread it out into a dosa.  Drizzle 1 tsp of oil around and on the dosa.
  • When the first side is cooked, flip over to the other side and cook until done.
  • Remove from tawa and serve hot with allam pachadi/ginger chutney or coconut chutney or onion chutney.


  • The batter should be coarse and not too smooth.  This will give good texture to the dosa.
  • Can use finely-diced onions as topping.
  • You can refrigerate the batter for upto 2 days.
