PEA'S UTHAPPAM

My second entry to FIC white event hosted by Kitchen Flavours and Sunshinemom


This I had quiet long back to say about 10 or12 years back in a hotel. I went for invigilation for Hindi Exams. After finishing my that day's duty.. me, my sister and my cousin sister went to hotel to have tiffin and coffee( So tired after the hard work right?!..Ha! ha!..).

It was quiet surprise for me, When I found this in the Menu Card, can we do Uthappam using peas?!.. I was pretty young and ignorant on cooking skills. I never shown interest on Uthappam as it is not crispy and roasty like dosas. Since it was new to me those days, i immediately ordered for Uthappam and it looked such a big thing for my tiny eyes.... Tasted and found good.

From that day I preferred this whenever my mom makes Uthappam. And now I started prepare using peas. My home people like this very much...

Here the simple and tasty recipe of White and Green combo...

INGREDIENTS

Dosa/Idli batter - 2 cups
Dried Red chilli - 2 to 3
Peas - 1/2 cup
Onion 1 chopped (optional)
Urid Dal 2 tsp
Chenna dal 2 tsp
Mustard 1 tsp
Hind a pinch
cumin seeds few
curry leaves few

METHOD

Tamper all the tampering items and add onions, saute it to golden brown.
Add frozen peas and saute till it cooked.
Add this to Dosa/Idli batter. stir well. Add little salt since the Dosa batter contains salt already.
Now the batter for Uthappam is ready.
Pour this batter in dosa griddle lightly thicker than dosas and sprinkle oil around and cover it with a lid.
Take out few mts later and serve hot with any chutney/sambar/chilli powder.

Tips
U can keep saute peas and onions separately and sprinkle on the top while making uthappam.
This is going to one more even
