Pesarattu is a crepe-like bread, originating in Andhra Pradesh, India, that is a variety of dosa. It is made with green gram (moong dal) batter, but, unlike a typical dosa, it does not contain urad dal. Pesarattu is eaten as breakfast and as a snack in Andhra Pradesh. It is typically served with ginger chutney or tamarind chutney. Green chilies, ginger and onions are used in variants.
A pesarattu stuffed with upma is known as upma pesarattu. It is popular in Andhra Pradesh cities. Upma pesarattu is a favourite in the Coastal Andhra.
The difference between Pesarattu and Dosa is simple, dosa batter needs rice and urad dal and nedds to get fermentation, whereas pesarattu doesnt need fermentation.
