Onion Tomato Uttapam
- Idli Batter - 4 cups
- Onions - 2 finely chopped
- Tomatoes - 2 finely chopped
- Fresh coriander leaves - ¼ cup
- Green chillies - 4 finely chopped
- Sesame oil - 4-6 tbsp
Keep the batter ready. Add more water if you feel its too thick.
Heat a tawa/griddle and grease it lightly with oil for a minute.
Lower the flame and scoop a ladle full of the batter and pour it over the griddle. It has to be thick, so just spread it lightly. Pour few drops of oil along the sides of the uttapam.
Sprinkle chopped veggies - onion, tomato, coriander leaves, green chillies and let it cook for 2 minutes.
Turn it over and let the other side also cook for a minute.
Serve these savory pancakes with chutney.
