Sprouting grains increases many of the grains' key nutrients including Vitamin B, Vitamin C, folate, fibre and essential amino acids which are lacking in the milled grains and pulses. Pesarattu is generally made using the split/whole moong by soaking and grinding. I used the sprouted green gram and moth beans (matki) and made this nutritious pesarattu dosa.
