Onion/Tomato Oothappam

oothappam, onion oothappam


Raw rice - 2 cups
Urad dal - 3/4 cup
Fenugreek  - 1 tsp
Onion - 2 or 3 - cut into small squares.
Tomato - 2 - chop into long pieces.
Chillies - 4-5 finely cut.
Coriander leaves - one cup.
Salt - As required


Wash and soak rice, urad dal and fenugreek for about 7-8 hours.  Grind them with a little bit of water to a fine paste.  Don't add too much water as the batter needs to a bit thick in consistency.  Add salt and mix well.  Keep it aside to ferment for about 9-10 hours.

Heat dosa tawa and add a teaspoon of oil to it.  Pour a spoon of batter onto the tawa and spread it around.  It should be a bit thicker than the normal dosa.  Immediately add onions, tomatoes, chillies and coriander leaves on top of the dosa and let it cook for a few minutes.  Then flip the dosa and cook the other side also.

Serve with coconut/tomato chutney, groundnut/peanut chutney or sambar.

***Can add other vegetables like carrot, capsicum, boiled green peas, etc., also along with onions and tomatoes.
