Pesarattu/Moong dhal Dosa with Ginger Chutney

Has every one watched the 'Avatar' movie??? if not please watch it soon as this is the must see movie. I watched it the second time with my boy last weekend, I can't believe my boy has grown big to accompany me for a movie and the first time we went as a family ..yes with my 18m old girl and I could not watch the movie peacefully the first time, its a wonderful movie and a woman sitting next to me kept on saying "wow" for each and every scene and its worth it. 
Coming to the recipe, I would say pesarattu with ginger chuttney is the combination and if I don't set a limit say 3 or may be 4 dosas, I would ending eating countless number of dosas, I love it sooo much. The greatness of this dosa is there is NO need for fermentation so as soon as you grind it you make can dosa out of it. Lets get to the recipe of my heartthrob dish.
