Tomato Onion Uthappam

Tomato Onion Uthappam is one more South Indian breakfast delicacy. If you have left over idli batter, this is a breeze to make. Ingredients 2 cups Idli rice 1 cup Urad dal Handful of poha/avalakki Handful of cooked rice To make Uthappam, you will need: Finely sliced small red onions - 2 Thin sliced tomatoes - 2 Fine sliced green chillies - 2 Finely chopped coriander leaves - 2 Tbsp Method Chop onions and tomatoes very finely to avoid the rawness of the veggies while eating dosas. Mix all the chopped items in a bowl and keep aside. Mean while heat a dosa tawa or griddle. When you sprinkle a few drops of water on the griddle, the water should sizzle and evaporate. This means the griddle is ready. Pour a ladle full of batter on the griddle and spread it into a thick circle with the help of the backside of the ladle. Oothappams are supposed to be thick unlike crispy dosas. Sprinkle the chopped veggies over the batter using your fingers or a spoon. Take 1/2 tsp of oil and spread around the edges of the circle / oothappam and also on the veggies, if you prefer. Slow down the heat a little bit and let the bottom side cook as well. Flip the oothappam and again spread some oil around it and let it sit for a minute or less so that it is cooked on the other side too. Remove the oothappam with a spatula. Repeat the process with the remaining batter. Serve hot with chutney and or sambhar.
