Uttapam

Dosa is such a popular dish that new ways of making them are always welcome. Everyone loves a good masala dosa, the crisp dosa with red chutney and aloo palya on the inside served with sambar and chutney. That surely is a hit combination and I have not met a single soul that dislikes dosas. So here I am, back with another simple dosa recipe with homemade dosa batter, 3 ways uttapam. Read on to find out more 🙂
So this 3 ways uttapam, I have used different toppings to make it colourful and interesting. It has shallots (small onions), tomatoes, capsicum laid out of thick dosas with a crisp underside. Sounds just yum, isn’t it! For uttapam you can use freshly fermented dosa batter or left over dosa batter. But trust me you would want to make dosa batter just to make uttapam, the joy of eating specially made uttapam is equal to if not better than favourite masala dosas!

Uttapam is a less demanding dosa, it does not require chutney. A simple ketchup or even pickle and uttapam is served. The toppings on these soft dosas make it extra special and these can be chopped up in no time at all, it gets ready by the time tawa is heated. Make the uttapam slightly thick and not like regular dosa, this will hold the toppings well.
