How to Make Crispy onion uthapam

  • Chop onions into fine slices.
  • Keep the skillet/girdle on a medium flame, smear oil all over.
  • Temper with mustard, asafoetida powder, cumin, split urad dal, channa dal, red chilli and finely chopped curry leaves.
  • Wait for the mustard to splutter.
  • Add chopped onion, saute for a minute.
  • Add grated cashews and saute further. Transfer this to the batter.
  • Add freshly chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
  • Take a ladleful of batter and spread it over the skillet.
  • The thickness should be like that of a pancake.
  • Drizzle oil on all sides and allow it to cook until one side turns crisp and golden brown in colour.
  • Gently flip the uthapam over and allow it to cook.
  • Take out the uthapam from the skillet.
  • Serve hot immediately before it loses its crispiness.
