In a frying pan, pour 1 table spoon oil and wait till it gets heated.
Put the chopped onions and fry till onions becomes golden brown.
Add the sambar powder or chilly powder and fry along with the onions.
Off the flame and place this fried onions in a separate plate.
Now we will make onion dosa.
Heat a non stick tawa or iron tawa. Add one or two drops of oil and rub with half onion. This process avoids Dosa from sticking to the tawa.
Pour one ladle of batter in the center of tawa and spread it in a circular motion as shown in the image.
Drizzle one tea spoon of oil around and across the dosa.
Once the dosa is cooked to some extent, flip it over to the other side.
Cook the other side also well and turn the dosa back.
Spread the onions on the dosa, wait as it is; for few seconds and take it out of the flame.
Serve hot with any chutney or idly milagai podi.
