Uthappam batter: 2 ladles or 1 small cup
Cashews: 1 tsp (break into small pieces)
Almonds: 6/7 no.
Raisins: 1 tbsp
Dates: 3/4 no.
Oil/ ghee: 1 tsp
Method of preparation:
1. Heat dosa pan sprinkle little melted ghee and pour one cup of batter onto the tawa and move the ladle in circular motion to get thick dosa/ uthappam.
2. Wait for few seconds and add the dry fruits mentioned above either finely cut into small pieces or whole dry fruits too.
3. Cook the uthappam on low flame covering with lid and turn to other side. Sprinkle half tsp of ghee and cook the other side too. This whole process will take approximately 10 minutes.
4. When the uthappam is done it will come up easily. Fry both sides till it turns to golden brown colour.Transfer the uthappam onto a plate and be served hot with any chutney/ tomato ketch up or can be consumed directly too.
You can even cut the uthappam carefully with knife into two halves or required shape.
I used melted ghee for frying uthappams because,dry fruits give nice flavor when fried with ghee.
