I usually make it with idli batter and muc vegetables to the batter. Using vegetables as a topping sounds good and this way even the vegetables are nicely cooked.

Colorful uthappams. I too make uthappams with leftover dosa batter and the version you posted sounds interesting as well. I am lazy to go with the extra step of cooking the toppings and so avoid adding the beans. :)

Is there any other way a person would think of making cookery simple, other than owning a potato peeler? For all the people who have used this kind of electric peeler, all they have commented is good news. vegetable scraper
