Few points for Tomato Uthappam:
Cook on a low to medium flame. Utthapams take a little more time to cook than dosas, as they are thick.
I have had uthapams in a couple of restaurants where the outside was crisp and cooked but the inside of the uthappams were not cooked. I could literally taste the batter. You don’t want your uthappams to taste like this. So avoid cooking on a high flame.
You could also use oil instead of butter or ghee. But the uthappams taste better when made with ghee or butter.
