The C3 – Coconut Curry leaves Chutney – Accompaniment for Dosa’s /Idli’s

 
Chutney’s are such a fab accompaniment. It jazz’s up the food in minutes.. A total highlight along with papad’s or popadam’s served as starters.. or along with a curry .. Its a misconception that a chutney is a spicy side accompaniment. Instead I call chutney as a companion to any bland dish because its flavour packed in that tiny little bowl served.

Any South Indian home must be having Dosa’s – the lentil pancake and Idly’s – the lentil doughnuts for breakfast .They are served with an ala carte of chutneys if you have guests .. lol . I mean it.. When you are by yourself at home, we mostly serve with one chutney two chutney’s at the max and along with dosa milagaipodi as its always readily available in the pantry.  If not chutney’s , a seasoned potato masala is made and its wholesome !!

Spring has begun , the Sun is shining and its bright and blooming outside !!!
Garden Centre’s are getting spruced up welcoming new and little visitors like us. Mums  Dad’s have begun to lawn move in an attempt to make it their laundered garden ever. So whenever transient visitors come around, they  are definitely tumultous  and wooed.  Easter break has begun.. So kids together at home are competely struck by boredom. Lil V. V is a 6 years old kid who likes to do cool stuff.. Have you got a definition of cool in your dictionary ? 

Onion Uttappam – Onion Lentil Pancake | South indian Breakfast

When I was walking down to school, I was thinking what could be my first post after a break… Rackling my  head hard, my lil miss sunshine smiled at me ..And I knew it got to be one of her favourites.. Onion Uthappam. Miss S doesnt like plain dosa’s with sugar…as opposed to her elder brother !! And this is my favourite too .. A teeny bit of heat to this classic southindian dish !
A clear difference between a dosa to an uthappam is that the latter is thicker and the first is prefered thin and crisp .Again its entirely a personal choice.
Uthappams can have toppings of your choice.. Onion Uthappam , Tomato Onion Uthappam , kids friendly can be cheese uthappam , mixed veg uthappam . They are served with Coconut Chutney , Tomato Chutney & Sambar . But I just like it with Ketchup 🙂 and Coconut Chutney.
