onion tomato uttapam recipe

i usually make uttapam with the leftover idli or dosa batter. speaking of uttapams, reminds me of my mom who always prefers uttapams over dosas. instead of regular dosas she likes to make uttapams for herself. since both can be from the same dosa batter, so you have the option to choose.

personally, i like both uttapams and dosas. the main difference between uttapams and dosas is that uttapams are slightly thicker than dosas and sometimes if you don’t cook them well then the insides will be little uncooked.

there are different varieties of uttapams like: rava uttapam, onion uttapam, masala uttapam, oats uttapam, cheese uttapam, mix veg uttapam, butter uttapam etc.

tips for making onion tomato uttapam

  1. cook on a low to medium flame. uttapams take a little more time to cook than dosas, as they are thick.
  2. i have had uttapams in a couple of restaurants where the outside was crisp and cooked but the inside of the uttapams were not cooked. i could literally taste the batter. you don’t want your uttapams to taste like this. so avoid cooking on a high flame.
  3. you could also use oil instead of butter or ghee. but the uttapams taste better when made with ghee or butter.

like dosas, uttapams also are served with coconut chutney and sambar.

  2. Hi ma’am, your recipes turn out perfect as always. I just want to know if we can add onion and coriander in to the batter and then spread it out on tava.??

    • thanks kiran. you can add coriander leaves in the batter. but if you add onions, it can be difficult spreading the batter. so i would suggest to finely chop the onions and add.
