Yellow Vegetable Uttappam (Kids Disguise)

Uttappam is a comonly used term in the southern parts of India for a dosa like dish prepared with veggies.Its usually referred as the 'Indian Pizza' or pancake.Its thicker in consistency than dosas.As a mom, many of you might have faced the same problem as me,right??Each day kids want something new. That goes in terms of the look or taste of the food they eat.And its the moral duty of every mom to please their kidoos. So,here comes a simple uttapam recipe with an added colour and a different taste.If you have the dosa batter ready,everything else is simple and quick.I added yogurt and chopped onion,tomatoes and cilantro and a pinch of turmeric powder to colour it up.Any ways friends that worked out for a day !!


dosa batter - 1 1/2 cups
onion 1 chopped
tomato 1 chopped
cilantro 1/2 cup chopped
green chilli 4 chopped
yogurt 1/2 cup
turmeric powder 1/5 tsp
salt to taste
oil 2 tsp

  • Heat oil in a pan and saute onions , tomato,green chillies , cilantro for 5 minutes.
  • Add this mix into the dosa batter,mix it well.
  • Add the beaten yogurt and turmeric powder.Adjust salt.
  • Heat the dosa tawa and pour a ladle of batter and spread it evenly.
  • Flip the other side and cook till light brown .
  • Serve it hot with sambhar or chutney.

You make me laugh, that's a neat way of making kids think it's something different. When my cousin was a kid, she loved juice and wanted it often.... I would mix a little sugar in water and give it to her, trick her into thinking it was juice. You reminded me of this episode...

@ Karen : I too laughed the way my kids gobbled it up, thinking it's different from the usual uttappams.. We moms have a tough job handling these tricky pangs..not so easy!!
