Uttapam also known as Uthappam in Tamil Nadu is a South Indian style Dosa. In Karnataka it is known as Uttappa. Unlike dosa Uttapam is thick with loads of topping. It is bulky and is considered as a complete dish rather than side dish. If you eat 2 to 3 of it you won’t feel hungry for 4 to 5 hours. It is mainly accompanied with Sambhar and Chutney. Coconut or Peanut Chutney are the best suited with it depending upon your taste.

It’s traditionally made with urad dal and rice but many new variations and recipes have been developed by people to suit their taste and ingredient availability.
