Don’t we all have at least one version of uttappam/uttappa that we love? These are thick dosas topped with one or all of – onions, tomatoes, carrots etc. Usually I make uttappa(as we call it) with left over dosa batter, to just finish off the batter. Last year when aayi came to visit us, she made this version which she had seen in one of TV programs. We instantly became fans of these uttappas. According to me, this is anytime better than the ones I used to make before. Soft, fluffy, tasty, healthy. I sometimes add chopped carrot and tomatoes also. Needless to say, I have switched to this recipe of uttappas ever since I tasted it.
