South Indian restaurant leftover utthapam and tomato-rice, breaded eggplant, fries

When I was teaching earlier this week, my aunt and wife went out to a favorite South Indian restaurant, Udipi in Cary, NC. We are out to a party tonight and wanted to eat, but leave a little space for snacks at the party. I heated the leftovers that my wife brought home - utthapam, a South Indian "pizza" similar to dosa (ground lentils and rice are fermented, like with dosa, but then instead of forming a crispy crepe with optional filling, utthapam is served as a thick pancake with fillings like vegetables or coconut mixed right into the batter), and a spicy tomato rice. I also served organic Cascadian Farm French Fries with Indian black salt (kala namak, actually pink in color, and with a nicely strong sulfuric taste), breaded eggplant, and a tomato-avocado salad.

Oh how we love Udipi! That's the first place we go whenever we're in the Triangle area but unfortunately it's been over a year now since we've been. Maybe a road trip will be in order soon...

Let me know when you are next visiting! We love Udipi, as well as Tower, South Indian restaurants.
