This uttapam will break the monotony of regular onion uttapam. Dried fruit and nuts are rich in potassium and contain a good amount of dietary fiber that is effective in bringing down blood pressure within the normal range. So addition of these mixed seeds and dried fruit is a perfect topping for our people with hypertension.

Finely chop onions.
In a bowl, mix together rava, low fat curds and cinnamon powder. Keep it aside for half an hour.
Did you know? Cinnamon which is readily available to purchase from stores is derived from a related species referred to as “cassia”. Ceylon, or “true” cinnamon, comes from real cinnamon bark, which is lighter, softer in texture, and much thinner in circumference than cassia.
Mix chopped dried fruits and nuts and keep it aside.
Add enough water (approx. ½ cup) to get a slightly thicker batter consistency than the dosa batter.
Heat a non-stick tava, when it is hot enough, pour a ladle of batter and spread a little. Add the mixed nuts and dried fruits mix on the uttapam. Now reduce the flame to medium.
Drizzle little oil (1/4tsp) around the uttapam and close it with a lid if needed.
Once it starts lifting around the corners, flip the uttapam to the other side for a few secs (approx30 secs) to just get rid of the rawness of the dry fruit.
Once it is cooked, take it off the tava and serve hot.
Repeat the process for the rest of the batter.
