With the dosa batter I normally prepare Othappam with different toppings. I am happy to add the intake of vegetables in each and every meal.
Items needed for Dosa batter:
Boiled rice :1 cup
Raw Rice 1 cup
Urud dal ¼ cup
Methi seeds ½ tsp.
Left over Idli or Dosa batter
Wash and soak all items for 5 to 6 hours then grind into fine paste.
Keep this paste for fermentation.
Othppam is a thicker version of Dosa with vegetable toppings.
Heat Dosa pan, apply little oil and wipe it with dry tissue.
Pour one ladle ful of batter in the centre of the pan and spread it thicker.
Slow down fire and add the toppings of Sliced Onion, Tomato, Green Chilli, Coriander leaves.
Adding some oil on the edges will cook the Othappam nicely.
When the Othappam is cooked, turn over and allow the other to get cooked.
Othappam can be served with Chutney, Sambar or Idli Podi.
Variation of toppings:
1.Finely cut onion alone can be used.
2. Mix of Onion and Tomato.
3. Grated Carrot and Onion
4. Idli Podi.
5. Tomato and Cheese. Sprinkle pepper powder.
6. Capsicum, Onion, Tomato.
7. Coconut - finely cut pieces.
