Mini Uthappam platter

This was my idea for a weekend breakfast platter for quite some time. Happy that during Holi festive days I made this. Being a South Indian I'm celebrating holi with different colors on my plate.

I believe that imagination can always take us to different level if carried out in a proper way.In North we make paratha with different stuffings.South, We make different uthappams. An interesting fact is that whatever  you can't stuff inside a paratha can go and sit happily on top of a dosa.

Now lets head to the recipe straight away . You need little patience as the expalnations are bit lenghthy.
