      Hello Megha, With dishes like Uttapam and Dosa one need to be very patient while cooking. Let the Uttapam leave the sides of the pan then only try flip it. Pour some extra oil from the sides to make it easier flipping the Uttapam. Also, a good quality non-stick pan is a must have equipment to make Uttapam. Hope this helps. Thanks, Hina
