Vegetable uthappam recipe
Basically I am a big dosa lover and love to try dosa varieties at home.I make them mostly for breakfast. But I couldn’t share all of them in my blog as I don’t get time to click the pictures in the busy morning hours.Today Sendhil is working from home. So I prepared this mixed vegetable uthappam for his breakfast and clicked it too. Onion uttapam and vegetable uthappam are our favorite among all the uthappam recipes in restaurant. So most of the time, this would be in our daily routine menu. 

More than the restaurant ones, I love this dosa version from small road side dosa corner. I have tasted and seen the making of mixed vegetable dosa several times in road side 101 dosa varieties stalls in Salem and Bangalore as well.

 Topped with the mixture of colorful, finely chopped vegetables & with lots of butter, this dosa tastes awesome with a watery coconut chutney, spicy Kara chutney and sambar served as a side dish. Literally I am drooling while writing this post and feel like running to a nearby dosa stall. 

At home, we can make a low calorie version by using less oil/butter and more healthy by adding more quantity of vegetables than hotels.Do try this for breakfast & kids lunch box. They would love to eat this colorful dosa. Sprinkle some cheese & make it more attractive for kids. 

Lets see how to make this yummy vegetable uthappam recipe with step by step photos.

Yum..its been years I made this!! :)
Instead of chopping the carrots, you can grate them along with some ginger. Also, you can cover and cook, in that way you don't have to flip the oothappam, which will be more bright in color and a visual feast to eyes too!! :))
