Onion Uttappam, the savoury pancake made with dosa batter and topped with onions.It's my hubby favorite, so i make it atleast once in a week. Whenever i make dosa batter i reserve some for paniyaram and Uttappam.Here in the recipe, i didn't mention the amount of any ingredients, it's purely your choice, you can add more or less of ingredients as per your liking.And also, you can add coriander leaves, tomato in addition to the onions.Now let's see how to make this onion uttappam.
Chop the onions into small pieces and take required amount of batter.Heat the dosa pan.Pour a laddle full of dosa batter into pan and spread it gently.Don't spread it too much, it should be like thick pancake.Now add the chopped onion on top of the dosa evenly along with idly podi(if you're using) and sprinkle oil/ghee on the sides of the dosa.With the spatula, gently press the onion,so that it sticks to the batter well.Let it cook for few mins in medium flame.With the help of spatula, move the dosa to side of the pan, smear some oil/ghee on the center of the pan,then flip the dosa on top of that oil.It helps to cook the onions well.Cook on other sides in low flame till the onions are well cooked and turns into brown color and then remove it on plate.Serve it with hot sambar & chutney.Yummy Onion Uttapam is ready. We had it with moong dal sambar & coriander chutney.
- Once you flip the dosa, keep the flame in low it helps the onions to cook, otherwise, the onions are burnt and also it's raw inside.
- If you wish, add idly podi along with onions.
- Instead of big onions, you can use pearl onions too.It's even more tastier.
