ONION OOTHAPPAM




INGREDIENTS


  • IDLI/DOSA BATTER -2 CUPS
  • FINELY CHOPPED ONIONS-1 1/2 CUPS
  • CHOPPED GREEN CHILLIES-4-5
  • SALT TO TASTE
  • OIL 

METHOD

  • Mix half of the onions with the batter.
  • Mix in the chopped chillies and a little salt to taste.
  • On  a hot tawa,spread a ladle full of this mix .
  • Drizzle oil on the sides and sprinkle some onions on the top.
  • Cook on medium flame/heat.
  • Turn over and cook the other side too adding a little oil.
  • Serve hot with coconut chutney and sambar.
Since these are much heavier than regular dosas,they take longer  to cook and burn easily without cooking well ,if the heat is high .So it is preferable to use a heavy tawa and cooked on controlled heat
