Onion Uttappam

Today, my post will be sweet & simple as we are going out to watch "Anaganaga Oka Dheerudu", a socio-fantasy telugu movie produced by Walt Disney. I have a lot of expectations and hope it will keep up to that.

[Update] - We are just now home after watching the movie. The graphics and cinematography are par excellence. But a weak script and a poor screenplay can never be compensated with any of these technical gimmicks. The plot is pretty simple - a battle between good and evil. Sidharth is a blind warrior whose lady-love is Shruti Hasan and now his job is to protect the little girl Moksha (who is the only hope to restore peace) and kill the evil-spirit - Ayirendri (played by Lakshmi Manchu).
Throw in a bunch of songs here and there, couple of sword fights & there you have the movie - Anaganaga Oka Dheerudu. :-). Me & S always tend to give a rating to every movie we watch and this one would get a 2.5 out of 5.

Jumping on to today's recipe - "Onion Uttappam", with the left over idli batter. I confess, I like these more than the actual idlis. the tiny bits of crispy edges of these uttappams are to die for.

Ingredients -

Left over idli batter
finely minced ginger
finely chopped onions
2-3 green chillies, minced
fresh coriander, chopped
1 tsp of oil
Salt - if the batter is not seasoned.

Other add-ins - finely chopped tomato pieces, grated carrot, peas or any slightly steamed vegetable(s) , fresh curry leaves.

Note - There are no actual measurements for this recipe. Every ingredient can be added as per taste and it tastes delicious, nevertheless. :-)

Preparation -

Mix all the ingredients. Add little water, if desired.

Heat 1/2 tsp of oil on a non-stick pan on medium. Pour the batter in the center of the pan. After 3-4 secs and swirl around (good exercise, huh? ;-)), so that the batter spreads evenly. Cook for 2-3 mins until its golden brown. Using a spatula, turn the other side and cook for 2-3 mins.

A tiny tip for the center to be cooked perfectly is -  to make two or three slits (using the same spatula) and pour a little oil droplets on them.

Once done, serve with any chutney. The dollop in the middle (in the pic) is Ginger chutney (Allam chutney) that my MIL send from India. Nothing beats that taste. huh!.

Hope you all have a great (long) weekend ahead.

until next time,
