Uttapams are quite similar to dosas. In fact, the batter used is exactly the same. The main difference is that uttapams are quite thick pancakes where dosas are thin and crispy.
If you’re having trouble getting your dosas just right, you might like to try this recipe instead. Uttapams can actually be a lot thicker and spongier than shown but I prefer them just as you see here.
Another difference between dosas and uttapams is that fresh vegetables and herbs are cooked right into the batter. They’re kind of like small pizzas but without the cheese and gluten.
This is my basic recipe but feel free to get creative. Add the vegetables, spices and herbs you want. If it sounds good, it will be. You will need to make my dosa batter recipe in order to try this recipe. Click here to make it. Warning, dosa batter takes 36 hours to prepare.
