Green Gram Dosa/Green Mung Bean Pancakes

Green mung beans are healthy and tasty, I usually prefer them in salad and stir fry but like them in pancakes too. It is South Indian traditional breakfast recipe. This is the best recipe if you are dieting or into healthy food, what can be more healthier than beautifully sprouted mung beans? You can use overnight soaked green gram or ready made sprouted  ones.
