Ofcourse, this is not the original way Utthapam/Utthapa is made. But I had some Idli batter made with Idli-rava, and wanted to eat something nice without having to steam the idlis and at the same time, make my son eat something with veggies in it also.
So, just added a few veggies to the batter and made the thick dosas ( I called them Uttapam :) ).
So, this is what I did. To the Idli batter (for which I used Udad Dal and Idli Rava in the ratio 1 : 1 ½), I added some the following finely chopped vegetables:
Red onions, tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, green chillies and grated cauliflower. You could add grated carrots or any other vegetables also. Add little salt and mix all well.
Spread the batter on a heated tawa to form a thick round dosa. Drizzle oil on the sides and little on top of the dosa. Cover it and cook one side. Then flip the dosa over and cover and cook on other side.
Serve with chutney or sambar.
The result was delicious and a filling dosa or uttapam or whatever you would like to call it.
