You should always stack your fridge with at least a dozen of them. Why? Handiest food to have around! Kids are hungry? Make some egg sandwiches. Guests come in, make an egg curry or egg biryani. You are hungry? Poach an egg and have it topped with stir fried veggies – perfect protein source for the body! Check the freshness – keep a raw egg in a bowl of water. Fresh eggs will stay at the bottom while stale eggs stand on end or float.
Heat ½ tbsp oil in a non-stick pan, add onion and sauté for ½ minute. Add capsicum and tomato, mix and sauté for 2 minutes.
Put dosa batter in a bowl, add oats and yogurt and mix well.
Add green chillies to the pan, mix well and sauté for 1 minute. Switch off the heat, cool slightly and add the mixture to the dosa batter mixture and mix well.
Heat a non-stick tawa. Add a few drops oil on top and wipe it with a tissue paper.
Add little water to batter mixture and mix well.
Pour a ladleful of batter mixture on the tawa and spread into a medium sized uttappam. Sprinkle 1 tsp chopped capsicum and 1 tsp chopped tomato on top and cook for 2 minutes.
Break 1 egg in a bowl and slide it over the centre of the uttappam. Drizzle some oil around the edges and cook till the underside is crisp and golden. Flip and let the other side and egg cook. Prepare remaining uttappams similarly.
Transfer onto individual serving plates and serve hot with your choice of chutney.
