Dosa is the Indian pancake with a batter of fermented rice and lentils.You can make it as a thin wrap or as a thick pancake. Uttapam is the thick pancake version.
You can get it in many varieties.Onion,plain,masala,tomato and mixed veg.
Basically a dosa but a thicker version.
I usually make it with the left over batter of dosa.
Batter is a mix of rice and black split gram soaked overnight.
You may add rice flakes and fenugreek seeds to make it extra crispy.
It is rich in Iron and protein.It is also great for your bones and gut as it is fermented.
This dish has gained popularity all over thanks to Udupi restaurants.
While the west goes with plain flour egg loaded pancake,ours is a vegan gluten-free version.
It is loaded with proteins thanks to the lentils in it.Pair it with coconut or tomato garlic chutney for yummy results.
Nowadays very popular even in the western world.
Thanks to eateries like Sarvanna Bhavan,Dosa Plaza and Dosa diner.
It is as versatile as your pita bread a wrap.
Mix any veggies to create your own special recipe.Load it with veggies and have it on the go.
Healthy, tasty and unique!
