Here’s a delicious, tempting recipe that can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or as a main dish.  These are thick , crispy pancakes prepared from a combination of fermented batter, golden roasted onions & other spices.


This sizzling hot onion dosa or uttapam is very simple and easy to make. My children love this spicy taste and I will make it regularly. 


It makes an awesome combo with coconut chutneygreen chutneysambar.

My Italian soul does not know this at all - but it does appeal to my savory-loving soul. Yes, would happily wake up to this - or have it mid-day or for dinner - or before bed. Definitely.
