About Uttapam Recipe

Uttapam is a very popular dish in South India. Generally served with Sambhar and Coconut Chutney


Ingredients to make Uttapam

  • 1 1/2 cup soaked rice
  • 1/2 cup urad duli dal
  • salt to taste
  • oil as required

How to make Uttapam

  1. Soak urad dal and rice separately for at least 6 - 7 hours.
  2. Grind the urad dal with minimal water in a mixer to make a smooth paste and rice into a coarse paste
  3. Mix the two and let it ferment for about 6 - 7 hrs
  4. Grind the batter into a fine smooth paste
  5. Heat a pan before frying the uttapam and once its hot bring it off the flame
  6. Spread the batter on the pan using a spoon in a circular motion
  7. Put it back on the flame and cook it on medium flame
  8. Before the batter dries out a little brush some oil on it and very quickly add chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, capsicum, green chillies, coriander leaves.
  9. Sprinkle little salt to it
  10. Flip it over and cook the other side as well.
  11. Cook evenly and the uttapam is ready to be served

My Tip:

Prepare the thick uttapam on medium flame from dosa batter
