It was a cold monsoon evening and we felt like eating something spicy, hot and crunchy over dinner. I was actually planning to make dosa and chutney. Suddenly the Onion Uthappam idea came to my mind and yes, within a short while, we were enjoying it hot. If you have fermented dosa batter, it is always a good choice to make onion uthappam.
For kids, they get easily bored with usual dosa/idly routine, so try something different for them....
It can be a breakfast or dinner. Simple coconut chutney or sambar is a best match for uthappam. You may even take it without any side dish. Home-made dosa batter, makes the dish complete.

Before making uthappam, make sure you have two things ready by your side. One is Dosa Batter. The dosa batter should have a honey thick consistency and should be well fermented. The second one is a mixture of chopped onion, pepper powder and salt.
Now, heat a tava, keep the flame in medium and pour1 laddle of dosa batter. Spread it just to flatten it and don’t spread it too wide and thin. On the spread, sprinkle onion mixture and pour 1 tsp oil. The batter on tava should be thickly spread so the onion will stick in place with the batter.
Now as one side gets cooked, that is, you can see the top white side gets dried up from the sides and the edges gets a golden brown colour, keep the flame low, flip it over and let the other side cook well. It is important to keep the flame lower when you flip it over, otherwise the onion may get burned and will taste bitter. You can make 5 uthappams out of ½ kg batter.
Now it’s time to serve the hot onion uthappam....
Stage 1- season chopped onion with salt and pepper. Take ½ kg dosa batter and get it to a honey- flow consistency.
Stage 2- heat a dosa tava and pour dosa batter. Spread it thick. Top it with onion mixture and pour 1tsp oil. Let the bottom side cook.
Stage 3- when the lower side is cooked, keep the flame low, flip it over so that the other side gets well cooked.
Stage4- serve it hot with a side dish of your choice.
