Uthappam is a type of dosa from South India. In TamilNadu it is known as Uthappam (ஊத்தப்பம்), Karnataka it is known as Uttappa (ಉತ್ತಪ್ಪ). In Tulu it is known as Ootappa (ಊತಪ್ಪ) or Ootappo ( ಊತಪ್ಪೊ). Unlike a typical dosa, which is crisp and crepe-like, uttapam is thicker, with toppings. The name is derived from the Tamil words Appam and Utthia or Uttria, meaning Poured-Appam. Because Appam is cooked on a round bottom pan, whereas Utthia-Appam is cooked on a flat skillet. The Tamil ancient literature have a mention of it by its name. The classic breakfast of the Tamil residents consists of idli, dosai or uttappam mostly accompanied by sambar and chutni.
