Bored of eating idli…I wanted to try out uttapam today using the idli batter at home. Uttappam is a dosa like dish which is soft n thick . It is either known as South Indian Pancake or traditional Indian Pizza.Uttappam is traditionally made with toppings such as tomatoes,onions,cilantro,green chillies and other veggies . It is often served with sambhar and chutney.
Preparation time : 5 minutes (if the batter is ready)
Cooking Time : 5 to 6 minutes
Makes : 3
2. Onions chopped - 1/2 cup
3. Green chillies – 3 (increase or decrease according to the spice u need)
4. Tomatoes , chopped finely – 1/2 cup
5. Coriander leaves / kottameer , chopped finely – 1/2 cup
Heat the tawa and add the batter to it in the center. Spread keeping the batter in little thickness . Add a tsp oil along the sides.
On the upper side , spread chopped onions,tomatoes,green chillies and coriander leaves. Allow it to cook on medium flame unto a minute and a half. Close it with a lid and cook for some more time say for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add little oil on the upper side of the uttapam and flip it. Cook for some more time till u get the golden brown color on the uttapam.
Serve hot with any chutney of ur choice and sambhar.
