Spring Onion-Bread Uthappam | Instant Dosa Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF
This post is lying in my drafts from such a long time and finally I am posting it today.I don't claim that this is my own version of dosa as I have come across several bread dosa recipes on the net. With my experience I have used the ingredients that I felt could make this dosa perfect. I am sure you all know my linking for dosas and how particular I am in terms of its crispiness, color and softness. While so far I have posted only traditional dosa recipes in my blog , I do make many instant dosa varieties and this one is very regularly prepared by me. I always end up with stale bread slices and this is really a rescue when you have lots of bread slices with you.The addition of rava and rice flour gives the crispiness to the dosa while the curds and murmur/poha does its job in making it soft. There is no need to add cooking soda to it0 the breads add t0 the softness. I like the flavor of spring onions in this dosa and if you do not have them handy then you can proceed with the regular onions or shallots which should not alter the taste very much.You can get more creative and add more ingredients to make this uthappam healthier and tastier.

Spring Onion-Bread Uthappam Recipe:
(Serves 2)

Ingredients:
8 wheat bread slices with edges
1/2 cup rava
3-4 tbsp Rice flour
a handful of puffed rice(mur mur) or pressed rice(poha)
1/4 cup curds
3-4 spring onions with whites,finely chopped
a sprig of curry leaves,finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped coriander
1/2 " ginger
1 tsp green chilli paste
1 tsp cumin seeds
salt to taste
Method:
  • Grind the bread slices to a powder.Add rava,rice flour,mur mur or poha,ginger and curds to it and grind again to a nice paste.
  • Add enough water to it to get the consistency of dosa batter and just give a turn again in mixie.
  • Remove it to bowl and add jeera,green chili paste and finely chopped spring onions(along with the white part) and finely chopped curry leaves to it.
  • Add salt(remember bread has already salt in it,so add less) to taste and mix everything well.Leave it aside for 5-7 mins.
  • Now heat a non stick tawa and slight grease the tawa with oil and when it is hot enough pour a big ladle of batter on it and spread slightly.Do not make it thin as this is uthappam and it should be slightly thick.Do not spread too thick or too thin,it should be medium thickness.
  • Pour oil over the edges and on top and cover it with a lid and let it roast on a low flame.This takes more time to get roasted as the bread makes it sticky,so fry on one side for longer time.
  • Once the base is nice golden in color turn on to the other side and roast again.
Serve it hot with coconut chutney/tomato chutney/peanut chutney.

Notes:
  • If your batter sticks to the pan and if the uthappam is soggy,add 1-2 tbsp of rice flour to the batter and mix well and start again pouring the dosas.
Variations:Bold
  1. If you want to make thin and crispy dosas instead of uthappam then do not add spring onions and curry leaves to the batter.After pouring the batter spread it thin and pour oil over it and roast until crispy.
  2. You can even add shallots or regular onions instead of spring onions.
  3. You can even add grated carrot,chopped coriander,grated coconut to the batter.

Thanks for this wonderful recipe. My kid and my husband (who never eats bread) had no clue what they ate when they said it tastes good :)

TS said...

Hi just came across your blog... must say-- pretty neat..
however i'm sort of a beginner at cooking and I love dosa's.
We have a regular mixie, so not sure if this batter can be made well.
also when u say.. grind bread.. is it bread-toasted or directly from the packet?
Just wondering how long will lit take to make the batter with my regular mixie and all these ingredients.
any sugg appreciated

Prathibha said...

hi TS,You need to use the bread out of the packet(not the toasted one)..Even I ground this batter in a mixie,it hardly takes any time to gridn this batter as all the ingredients can be easily ground.I hope this helps.
