Variety Uthappam (Oothappam)

Uthappam is very simple to make and it does not need any great expertise. All we need to do is to make the the toppings on uthappam. We can have many different varieties of toppings like onion, tomato, capsicum, paneer and much more. It depends on how creative we are and what your family likes. In the below recipe i made Uthappam using 6 different toppings which is very delicious as well as very presentable. We can plan for a great uthappam toppings to surprise our family and guests.

Many of generally use to do onion uthappam a lot. But i would encourage you to try different toppings. Kids love Panneer topping. Elders love the Podi topping. Capsicum/Carrot will also taste very yummy. I usually make a batter once a week, and use the batter for first two days to make idly's and third day for Dosa. Instead of Dosa, i also make Uthappam, which is loved by everyone in the family. You can also try this approach and give a pleasant surprise to your family

  1. Finely chop the onion, tomato, red capsicum, green capsicum and coriander leaves and keep each one separately in a plate. Very finely chop the green chillies. Peel the carrot skin and grate it. Grate the paneer. Now out ingredients are ready. Take the dosa batter. Do not dilute the dosa batter. We need a thick batter to make uthappam. For normal roast dosa, we need diluted batter then only we can have thin dosa, but for uthappam we need thick batter as we don't need to spread the batter. 

  2. Heat a tawa and grease it with little oil. Add a small ladle of batter and allow it to settle on its own. Do not spread the batter. 

  3. Pour little ghee or oil. When small bubbles starts to come, add the toppings. For Onion Uthappam, sprinkle the chopped onions and green chillies on top of the batter and keep the flame in medium allow the uthappam to cook.  

  4. Gently turn the uthappam to other side and drizzle little ghee or oil and cook the uthappam on other side in low flame
