ONION UTTAPAM RECIPE | SMALL ONION UTTAPAM | MURUGAN IDLI KADAI STYLE

I rarely make this uttapams at home as kids prefer crispy dosas , but me and my hubby like uttapma especially with the addition of onions in that. Whenever we go to murugan idli kadai ( A restaurant originally from Madurai famous for idlis) we order this small onion uttapams and long time i wanted to try this at home. Whenever i have dosa batter in hand i run out of shallots and the vice versa. This time i had every thing in hand and can’t wait to try this out.

I had a few small doubts regarding this recipe which i got clarified with one of the chef during my recent visit to the restaurant.

ONION UTTAPAM

INGREDIENTS:

DOSA BATTER 1/2 CUP
SHALLOTS | SMALL ONION| CHINNA VENGAYAM 15 – 20 NO
OIL 2-3 TBLSP
SALT A PINCH
BUTTER 1 TSP(OPTIONAL)
ONION UTTAPAM

METHOD:

  • Peel the skin of the onions and thinly slice the onions. Do not chop then finely.
  • Add a pinch of salt to the sliced onions and keep it aside. This yielded roughly 3/4 cup of onions.

  • Heat a dosa griddle and when it becomes hot, keep the flame to medium and pour a laddle full of batter to make a small circle.

  • Smear a handful of sliced onions which should cover the entire circle.
  • Add a tblsp of oil .

  • When it partially cooked , just flip the uttapam carefully .

  • Gently pat the uttapam with a the stick which we use to flip the dosa (dosa tiruppi).
  • This will help the onions to get infused into the dosa and no onions will come out.

  • Keep this in a medium flame for a minute and smear oil .
  • If adding butter add at this stage.
  • Serve hot with your favourite side dish.

Note:

  1. The batter which i used here is the same one which i used for kuzhi paniyaram.
  2. No need to saute the onions but if you want you can do so.
  3. Do not add onion in the batter also , as this will not give a perfect shape or taste to the uttapams.
  4. Always serve this hot and ensure that the onins should cover the entire dosa.
  5. Do not make this too thick , as there are chances of getting uncooked in the center part.
  6. You can also  smear a tsp of idli milagai podi after adding onions.
