Somehow,when the plate was coming to me I felt a sense of alarm..and I was right.It was nothing I expected an Uthappam to be and I didn’t feel like eating it at all.For starters,it was as big as the normal dosa and raw onions were used* as topping and I felt it was not cooked properly at the centre.Well,I ordered something else that day and swore never to order Uthappam from outside.
*I always prefer Mini-Uthappams and I like the onions to be stir fried for a while so that the raw taste doesn’t dominate.
Dosa batter – as required
Onion – 1
Green chilly – 1
Oil as required
Finely chop the onions and green chilly.
In a kadai,stir fry the onions and chilly together till they turn translucent. Heat a dosa tawa and pour the batter to make mini-dosas.
Spoon the onion-chilly mix on top of each dosa to cover it. Pour oil/ghee around the dosas.
Cover with a lid and simmer for a minute.
Flip the dosa carefully without spilling the onion mix. Let it cook on the other side and remove.
Serve hot!!Any topping can be used for Uthappams.Usually Onion,Tomato,Carrot,Paneer etc are used for making the toppings.You can use either of the toppings or mix it all up for a Mix-veg Uthappam.Leftover dosa-batter works fine for this dosa!!
