Purple Cabbage Uthappam | சிகப்பு கோஸ் ஊத்தப்பம்

Purple Cabbage Uthappam gives a colorful and flavorful twist to the regular Uthappam varieties. Uthappam is a famous South-Indian breakfast recipe. I have already posted few variations of Uthappam, check them here :- Oats Uthappam, Plain Uthappam, Onion Uthappam.

Purple cabbage is a salad lover's delight! I wanna try this colorful veggie in a staple indian breakfast. The rich deep colour of this vegetable is due to a high concentration of anthocyanin polyphenols (strong dietary antioxidants, possessing anti-inflammatory properties), making it have even more phytonutrients than a green cabbage. A few studies also show that anthocyanins may help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer.

 Ingredients :-
 Purple Cabbage    ¼
 Dosa Batter    1 cup  
 Ghee / Oil   as needed 
 Garlic Paruppu podi    as needed

Method :-
1). Wash and cut the cabbage into two halfs. Then chop the cabbage finely and keep aside. 
2). Heat the dosa pan, when it becomes hot, pour a ladle of batter and make thick crepes. When small bubbles appears, sprinkle the chopped purple cabbage along with the garlic paruppu podi. 
3). Drizzle ghee/oil on top and around the uthappam, let it cook until you can see the golden brown crust formation. When the sides and bottom starts browning, gently flip the uthappam. 
4). After flipping the uthappam, press the uthappam with the spatula so that cabbage and the garlic podi will get infused in the Uthappam. Let it cook for a minute till other side is cooked and remove from pan. 
Serve the Uthappam hot. I served it with tomato sambar.

Notes :-
# Dont miss garlic paruppu podi, it adds more flavor to the uthappam. Adjust the quantity depending upon the spiciness of the podi.
# Make sure the batter is thicker than the regular dosa batter.
