Onion Uttapam for busy mornings

Making breakfast remains one of the most important tasks of the day…..in many ways also the most important meal of the day. Uttapam is one of the great tasting South Indian snack or breakfast.  Uthappam is a thick pancake (dosa) made with regular dosa batter topped with onions. It has many different versions but Onion is one of my all time favorite. Instead of onion, you can add any fresh vegetable of your choice .

Ingredients :

Raw rice – 2 cups
Urad dal – 1 cup
Chopped onion – 1 cup
Black Salt - 1 tsp

Method :

Soak urad dal  and rice separate overnight.

Grind to a fine paste in next day. Mix all together. Add salt. Keep it for the whole night.

Mix the batter well next morning till it is sufficiently thick.

Mix the chopped onion and black salt in a bowl.

Heat a flat griddle and rub some oil on it.

Pour some batter on it with a ladle and spread it to a thick circle.

Sprinkle some onion mixture on the top side. When the base is golden brown, overturn the side and cook till done.

When it is roasted enough, put it down on a plate.Repeat the process.

Serve hot with Sambar or Mango pickel...
