Uthappa deserves to be called the Indian pizza as it lends itself to several toppings, the most popular being crisp cooked onions. You may also try other combinations such as onion and tomatoes.


Usually vendors spread the topping over the uthappam batter and press it in well with their wet fingers. But, to avoid hurting your fingers, use a spatula if you’re a novice!


With the same batter you can make a variety of Uttapas like Uttapa Pizza , Sandwich Uttapa , Mini Cheese Uttapa and the best for a party is Assorted Uttapa Platter .

How to make Onion Uttapa:

  1. Take a deep bowl and add the Dosa batter into it. You can either use store bought batter or learn how to make it at home.
  2. Add a little water to adjust the consistency. It shouldn't be too thick or too runny.
  3. Check the batter for salt. Add salt into the batter as per your liking. Mix well and keep aside.
  4. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle).Use a little oil to grease it and wipe off using a tissue or a piece of cloth. 
  5. Now, sprinkle a little water on it. If it sizzles immediately your pan is seasoned and ready to use. Wipe the water off using a piece of cloth. It is important to season the pan before you start cooking the uttapas so that they don’t stick to the tava.
  6. Pour ¾ cup of the batter on the tava (griddle) using a ladle.
  7. Immediately, spread the batter in a circular motion to make a 150 mm. (6") thick uttapa. Cook on a medium flame for a minute.
  8. Add 1 tsp of butter in the centre.  Smear it evenly over the uttapa using a flatspoon and cook for 2 minutes.
  9. Now, sprinkle 2 tbsp onions. Make sure the onions are finely chopped. Big chunks of onions give an awful mouthfeel.
  10. Add about 1 tsp of coriander to give the Onion uttapas a hint of freshness. 
  11. Also, add ½ tsp of green chillies to spice it up.
  12. Add ¼ tsp of garam masala over it. You can skip adding garam masala if you don’t like it.
  13. Turnover and cook on the other side till it turns light brown in colour.
  14. Repeat steps 5 to 12 with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more Onion Uttapas.
  15. Serve the Onion Uttapas immediately with sambhar, coconut chutney and green garlic chutney.
