i prepare onion uttapam with usually plain dosa or set dosa batter. i prepare these batter in bulk for at least 2-3 morning’s breakfast and i prepare onion uttapam on second or third day. the veggies, i top on these thick dosa vary each time. but i personally prefer onion and tomato toppings. you can also add grated carrot, capsicum, mint leaves etc. furthermore, with the same batter you can even prepare paddu or guliyappa recipe too.
