Uttappa/Uttapam is a thick dosa with onions and/or tomatoes. I made some Uttappams with left-over dosa batter.
Onions - finely chopped
Tomatoes - finely chopped
Coriander leaves - finely chopped
Green Chillies - finely chopped
Mix onions, tomatoes, green chillies and coriander leaves and keep handy.
Heat a tava, add a spoonful of oil and spread it. Pour some dosa batter. Do not spread as ordinary dosa.
Add some onion-tomato mixture on top of the dosa.
Drizzle some oil on the sides. Cover and fry till the bottom gets a golden colour.
Add a few drops of oil on top and flip it. Pat it slightly and fry till this side also becomes golden. Serve with chutney or sambar.
Make similar uttappams with remaining batter.
Note: The onion-tomato mixture can be added to the entire batter itself but onion tends to ooze water if the batter is kept for longer time. Chilli powder can be used instead of green chillies.
