Onion Uttappam with Coconut Chutney | South Indian Breakfast Recipe

Onion Uttappam

It’s been a while now since my last post. Guess what? We were in our hometown - Bangalore to celebrate our little champ’s 1st Birthday Party. We had a fun filled vacation in our hometown and a wonderful birthday bash with family and friends. Taking a little time to settle down from the journey, I’m back now with some interesting recipes which I learnt from my Mom-in-law. I will try and share them in short time.

Coming to the recipe, this was in my draft for a long time. Finally, the day has come to share it with you all. This is a very simple recipe which I make it sometimes to give a change in taste. My family is a big fan of dosas and we enjoy even if it is made thrice a week. Onion Uttappam is my recent favorite because the texture and taste. This goes very well with coconut chutney, chutney powder and sambar.

Onion Uttappam


  1. Dosa Batter as required
  2. Large Onion – 1 diced,
  3. Oil/Ghee

How to Prepare:

  • Dice onions and set aside.
  • Heat a flat griddle and smear little oil. Pour a ladle of dosa batter and do not spread over. Uttapam should be thick. Add the chopped onions on the dosa and drizzle oil or ghee. Cover and cook few seconds till golden brown.
  • Flip over and press slightly so that the onions get well roasted. Take off from the griddle and serve hot with coconut chutney/sambar/chutney powder.

Coconut Chtuney

  1. Coconut – 1/2 cup(sliced)
  2. Split Gram – 2 tsp
  3. Green Chilli – 6
  4. Onion – 1, small
  5. Garlic Pods – 2
  6. Water – as needed
  7. Salt to Taste
How to Prepare:
  • Put all the ingredients in the blender and make a little coarse mixture not too smooth. Transfer this to a bowl.
For Tempering:
  • Heat 1 tsp of oil and crackle mustard seeds and curry leaves. Pour this on the chutney and mix well.
  • You can also sprinkle little chutney powder on the uttappam before adding onions. This tastes great. May be you can skip this when preparing for kids.
  • For coconut chutney, tempering is totally optional. This just gives an added flavor. It tastes good without tempering too.
