'Uttapam' is a great snack or breakfast recipe from South India, very delicious, tasty and very easy to make. Uttapam is a variety of dosa, slightly thicker dosa, easilly called it 'No-Cheese Indian Pizza', my favourite South Indian dish. I don't need any sambar with it, it goes very well with any chutney. So here is the recipe of yummy flavourful uttapam with loads of veggies....
FOR MAKING BATTER:2&1/4 Cups Parboiled (ukra) Rice
1 Cup Skinless Black Gram (urad dal)
1/4 Cup Short-grained Raw Rice
1 tsp Fenugreek Seeds
FOR TOPPING:3/4 Cup Shredded Carrot
1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Coriander Leaves / Cilantro
1 Green Bell Pepper (finely chopped)
1 Large Onion (finely chopped)
1 tbsp Finely Chopped Green Chilies
1 tsp Sambar Powder
Salt to taste
Oil for Frying
METHOD:Soak parboiled rice, black gram, raw rice and fenugreek seeds in water seperately for 6 hours.
Combine parboiled rice, black gram, raw rice and fenugreek rice in a grinder jar.
Grind well into a smooth and thick batter using water as required, little by little.
Transfer batter into a bowl and set it aside for 8-10 hours, a well fermented batter gives very nice, soft and tasty dosa, idli or uttapam.
Add salt mix well. Add water as required. Dosa batter will be thinner and for uttapam, batter would be little thicker.
Heat a non-stick pan or tawa or griddle on medium heat and drizzle few drops of oil.
Pour 1&1/2 ladle full of the batter in the hot greased pan.
Sprinkle generously the chopped onion, shredded carrot, chopped green bell pepper, little green chilies, few chopped coriander leaves, a pinch of sambar powder fully covering the top and also add few drops of oil on it.
Cover the lid and cook on medium heat for 2 minutes. Open the lid and flip the uttapam and cook on low heat for another 2 minutes or till onion turns golden and crisp.
Serve hot uttapam with podi or chutney, its always yummilicious and filling!
