Notes on onion uttapam recipe. 1. Add a little water to adjust the consistency of dosa batter. It shouldn't be too thick or too runny. 2. Check the batter for salt. Add salt into the batter as per your liking. Mix well and keep aside. 3. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle). Use a little oil to grease it and wipe off using a tissue or a piece of cloth. 4. 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. 5.
Usually vendors spread the topping over the uttapam 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 dosa 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.
