Vegetable Uttappam



There are various variety of dosa But this one is easy and just filling with a wonderful taste.The best part about this recipe is with one single batter you can prepare thuppa dosa,uttapa,set dosa ,masala dosa,dodna and many more.Prepare the basic batter then enjoy the whole week.I just love this dosa as its soft,spongy with roasted vegetable of your choice.This has got a beautiful look and is really apealing.I call it indian pizza....That way kids also will like to give a try .

Ingredients:
----------
Rice - 2cups
Urad dal -1/2 cup
Poha - 1/2 cup
methi seeds - 1 tsp
Salt
Carrot grates- 1/2 cup
Onion - 1/2 cup
Green chillies-2
Coriander leaves-3 tsp


Method:-
--------
1.Soak rice,methi seeds and urad dal in warm water for about a couple of hours.
2.Then grind these with salt and poha to form a smooth paste.
3.If its cold out then add yeast dissolved in warm water for 5 mins[setting]
4.Keep in warm place so as it rises to double the size.Or over night for even better results.
5.Then mix properly and pour enough batter in a hot pan and make a round dosa and sprikle with grated carrot,chillies and onion .Then little bit of chopped coriander leaves [You can also add ginger and chopped capsicum,beetroot any vegetable of your choice]
6.Cover and allow it to cook for 2-3 mins then remove the lid,smear oil ans filp it to other side and smear this side with oil or ghee and wait for 1 min so that the top layer of dosa is roasted well.Then remove and serve with freshly made chutney or just like that.

I love these uttappa. I make them with leftover idli batter, actually I make excess idli batter so that I get to make the uttappa next day :)
