Onion Podi Dosa

                                          It is like, my kid who is just three years now, wants to have different different recipes. She never minds even to have a very little amount of the dish, but the dish should sound new to her. Coming to kitchen, she'll ask for the recipe, for that day. If I say dosa, then her next question is "what dosa?". By this time, her father will say, "I know there are varieties in dosa, only when I got into my college". It is always funny when you come across a daughter father conversation. So I will have to make different varieties of dosa or parathas.
                                       This time I made onion dosa(uthappam) with the idli podi (spiced chutney powder). The taste was so good and a treat for spicy dosa lovers. This recipe is so easy that you will just need to chop the onions (no need of sauteing the onions) and sprinkle the idli podi (spiced chutney powder). If you have sudden arrival of guests, you can surprise them with this onion podi dosa. Infact you should have the idli or dosa batter.

Prep Time 5 mins
Cooking Time 10 mins


2 cups Idli or Dosa Batter
Onion Big (Finely Chopped)
As needed Sesame Oil/ Gingelly oil

  1. First chop the onions finely and keep it aside.
  2. Heat the tawa and once the tawa is heated, pour the idli batter with a ladle and spread it in round motion to make dosa (similar to the pancakes).
  3. Now put the chopped onion over the dosa. Almost on all the areas of dosa. 
  4. Then sprinkle the idli podi (Spiced chutney powder) on the dosa and put some sesame oil on the sides of dosa.
  5. Once cooked on one side turn to the other side. The second side will just take one minute or even less to cook. 
  6. Hence your dosa is ready.
  •  You can also add ghee instead of gingelly oil.
  • Grated carrot, chopped coriander can also be added.
                                           You can serve the dosa with spicy coconut chutney, sambar, tomato chutney,etc. I will prefer having it as such, but when it for myself I will add more dash of idli powder.
