Tomato Utappam – Tomato Dosa

Tomato Omelet it is usually called. I changed the name so as to not give a heart attack to the many visitors who are very traditional. This dosa has no EGGS. However, it has onions. Very healthy, very tasty, takes a little longer to cook when compared to regular dosa if you want it crispy. I used to make this dosa regularly when I first got married. After Sneha was born things changed, and I prepared dishes which she liked and this dosa went away.

Last week, I had just 1 cup dosa batter which wasn’t enough for making dosa for two people. I could have made Onion uttapam, but seeing red ripe tomatoes decided to make Tomato Utappam/Tomato Dosa or Tomato Omelet. Of course, you can make it even without left over Dosa batter. I have ingredients listed for both batters below.

Ingredients using left over Dosa Batter:

  • 1 cup left over Dosa batter
  • 2 cups Besan flour
  • 3 tomatoes chopped finely
  • 1 large onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 bunch coriander leaves
  • 4-5 green chillies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • Salt to taste

Ingredients for regular Tomato Dosa:

  • 1/2 cup Rice flour
  • 1/2 cup fine sooji rava
  • 2 cups Besan flour
  • 3 tomatoes chopped finely
  • 1 large onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 bunch coriander leaves
  • 4-5 green chillies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  • Chop the tomatoes, onion, coriander and green chillies finely.
  • the smaller you chop, the crispier the Dosa
  • Mix all the ingredients, with enough water to make dosa batter.
  • Heat one griddle(Tava), and put the batter.
  • Cover the dosa, so it gets cooked properly on one side
  • Flip over and cook on other side as well
  • On another stove, heat another griddle(Tava). When it is done on both sides, transfer to other griddle(Tava)
  • Let it cook on low heat until the Dosa is crispy.
  • This dosa takes quite a while to become crispy because of the Tomatoes and Besan.
  • I used two Griddles (tava), so I could make them faster and crispier.
  • Serve with Pickles, Chatni or just eat them plain like we did.
