Spring onion shoots utappa & onion chutni

The veggie vendor had forced me to buy a big bunch of spring onionsthe other day.So I had to find some use for it.I had leftover dosa batter.I just cut some green shoots of the spring onions & added them to the batter & made utappas.I made some onion chutni by following Padhu ' recipe for the same.

This uttappa has green shoots in it & ginger...so it is wholesome as it has greens in it & ginger adds spice as also aids in digestion.

Ingredients for Uttappa:  2 cups idli or dosa batter, 1/3 cup spring onion green shoots  -roughly chopped, 1 tsp grated ginger,sat to taste,2 tbsp oil.

Method : Mix chopped green spring onion shoots,grated ginger & salt to the batter & mix nicely.The batter must have drop down consistency.If not add water &  mix nicely till drop down consistency is obtained.Keep aside.

Put on the gas & put the tawa on the gas burner. Turn on the gas to high..Grease with oil.Now put a ladle full of the batter on it.As it is full of spring onion greens,it will not spread easily.Let it be.Cover with a lid & allow to cook.After five minutes,the uttapa would be cooked on one side.It must have got browned on the cooked side.Flip the uttapa on the reverse side & cook again for 2-3 minutes.It will have browned little ( in patches ) on the other side.If more browning or crispier uttap is needed ,let it cook for another minute.

Reduce the gas to slow.Remove uttapa on to a plate & serve with onion chutni.

Original recipe from Padhu's kitchen.

Ingredients for onion chutni : 1 big onion ( I did not use Madras onons or vangayam ) -roughly  chopped, 2 byadgi red chillies, a few sprig of curry leaves,1 small  tamarind,salt to taste,1 tsp urad  dal, 1 tbsp oil.

Method : Heat oil in a kadhai .Add urad dal.When the urad dal turns golden brown in colour.,add byadgi michi ,followed by curry leaves.Then add the roughly chopped onions.Fry for 2 -3 minutes.Put off the gas.Add the tamarind piece & mix with the contents in the kadhai. Cool.Take the contents of the kadhai & blend nicely into a chutni in a mixer.Add salt to the chutni & blend again.

Vagar can be poured on chutni by popping a tsp of mustard seeds in a tsp of oil.After putting of the gas,add 1/4 tsp hing & haldi to the vagr mix.Put this vagar on chutni & mix.I loved this chutni as this was the first time,I made this chutni & it was yumm.
