Uttapam is a South Indian breakfast dish. A type of dosa. This is a dosa topped with fried onion, carrots and coriander leaves / cilantro (& chilli as per taste). This is made with the Dosa Batter (normally using the set dosa batter). Some people do make it using Idli Batter too. This goes well with coconut chutney or red chilli chutney.
