Pesarattu/Green gram dosa

Pesarattu is a very popular dish in Andhra pradesh ,served as breakfast and dinner in restaurants.This dish is prepared with whole moong dal/green grams.Telugu name for moong dal is pesarlu and attu is dosa ,very nutritious dish.Mom used to prepare this dish but not often.
After our wedding , we visited shirish's aunt and she served this combination of pesarattu and upma ,it was heavenly.I don't know the story behind the combination but its very famous in Andhra.
