Onion Uthappam

Onion Uthappam ia a popular south-indian breakfast which is prepared from fresh idly-dosai batter.It goes well with sambar,coconut chutney etc.; Chopped onion is the top ingredient which is sprinkled over the fresh dosai batter,it gives sweet taste for uthappam.You can sprinkle idly podi OR chaat masala over that for nice flavour.It keeps your stomach full for longer time.

Uthappam looks softer in upper side and stiffy in base sides.

I used to prepare uthappam once in a two weeks.My Man's staple order in hotels,so he told me the adjustments regarding the perfection.From that,nowadays it is favourite for me too.
