Onion Uttappam | Vengaya Uttappam | Breakfast recipe

Onion Uttapam, a delicious savoury pancake made with idli/dosa batter and topped with a lot of onions.
It's one of ST's favorites, so i often make them whenever i'm making dosa.

Here in the recipe, i didn't mention the amount for any ingredients, because it's purely personal choice, you can add more or less of any ingredients as per your liking.

And also, you can add coriander leaves, tomato in addition to the onions. But today i have made only with onions. 

Before moving to the recipe, let's check out some of the FAQs

What types of onions are good for Uttapam?
I have used pearl onions, shallots, red, yellow and white onions in my onion uttapam depends on what i have on that day of making. All taste good in their own way. So you can use whatever you have ! 

Why are the onions raw in my Uttapam ?
Here are few things to take care of to avoid the rawness of the onions in the uttapam
  1. Make sure to drizzle oil on the top of the onions.
  2. Thin slices of onions get cooked quickly, so slice them thinly for uttapam.
  3. Always cook uttapam on low-medium flame .
Now let's move on to the recipe !
