This genuinely colorful breakfast is so close to my soul that I love eating it straight out from griddle. Damn good food of my life revolves around such colorful breakfast recipes. The name “uppu huli dosa” sounds quite uncommon, but it’s a typical local name given to spice loaded crepe. The attractive color, the wonderful spices that go in to batter makes anyone to crave for it. Basically this crepe is prepared instantly as soon as batter is ready. I mean, No FERMENTATION required at all.
Versatility, is what I love about uppu huli dosa. I make this dosa batter in huge quantity and in a portion I throw in healthy greens like fenugreek leaves. It serves healthy and amazing flavor loaded fenugreek leaves dosa. Suppose If my store of greens is empty, then I look for some veggies like ridge gourd or brinjal or sweet potato. Thin slices of these veggies dipped in dosa batter and placed on the griddle makes a healthy veggie based dosa. Like this ridge gourd dosa.
Most of the basic spices that get in to uppu huli dosa include coriander seeds, cumin, red chillies, tamarind, jaggery and salt. Which means all taste ingredients are added to the dosa batter itself. So the dosa necessarily doesn’t require any accompaniment. You can top it with butter or simply pair with honey. I sometimes make coconut chutney or pair with plain yogurt. So lot many ways to serve the dosa. Isn’t it?
