Crispy Onion Uttappa / Onion pancakes

This is one of DH's favorite breakfasts in the whole wide world I think. Even if I serve him for lunch, dinner he loves it. In fact there are days when I am in hurry to prepare dinner he suggests making these. My DS loves anything onion. So these crispy Uttappa's are his favorites too. Since my little one scoffs at anything inside her plain Dosa (pancakes), plain ones for her! Here is a rundown on this easy to make Onion Uttappa's.

Prep Time: 5 min | Cooking Time: 3 to 5 min for each| Makes about 6

Dosa batter - 3 cups
Onion - 1-1/2 cup - Finely chopped
Green Chili - 1 - Finely chopped
Ginger - lime size - Finely Grated
Coriander/ Cilantro leaves - 2 or 3 springs - Finely chopped
Salt to taste

Method of Preparation:

~ Mix all the vegetables with salt. Add it to the dosa batter.
~ Heat and grease a thick pan. When it's hot enough, pour two ladle of batter.
~ Slowly in circular motion spread the batter to make a bigger circle.
~ Cover and cook for about 2 minutes.
~ Open, flip it over and gently press down throughout the Uttappa.
~ Wait for a minute or so, and remove from the pan.
~ Serve it hot topped with ghee, and a side of Sambhar or Chutney.

  1. Oh Yum! We love these onion pancakes! Looks really appetizing! But what is Dosa batter?

    1. I will post it soon about it and send u the link. It's actually like a pancake batter that is prepared with Rice and Black split gram(called Urad Daal - which helps in fermentation.). But if you have an Indian store nearby enquire them for Dosa batter. Many of them carry it nowadays.
