Instant Sooji Uttapa

Ingredients to make Instant Sooji Uttapa

  • 1 cup - Sooji / Coarse semolina /Rava
  • 3 tbsp - Besan / chickpea flour
  • 1/2 cup - plain butter Milk
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 large tomato finely diced
  • 2 Green Chilies finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • salt as per taste
  • 2 tsp oil + for shallow frying

How to make Instant Sooji Uttapa

  1. Take sooji and besan in a large bowl. Gradually, add plain butter milk and mix well with a spoon to form a smooth batter.
  2. Meanwhile finely chop the vegetables and sprinkle salt on them. After 20 minutes, check the batter for consistency and add a little water.
  3. Over a medium flame, heat a non-stick pan. Drizzle a few drops of oil over it. Reduce the flame to low and pour a ladle full of batter and spread it into a circle.
  4. Top the uttapa with chopped onions, tomatoes, chilies and coriander. Spread the vegetables evenly.
  5. Drizzle few drops of oil around the edge with help of a spoon and cover with a lid. Cook on medium heat until colour of the top surface changes from white to off white and the bottom side turns light brown.
  6. After 2 minutes flip it gently and cook on the other side for 1 minute.
  7. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or any chutney of your choice.

My Tip:

If you are in a hurry and cannot wait, then make the batter using warm buttermilk, this will fasten the soaking of sooji. If you do not have buttermilk, you can add 2-3 tbsp curd and some water to make the batter. There should be no lumps in the batter. Add salt and 1 tsp of oil and mix well and keep aside for 15 - 20 minutes.

Great breakfast option. I used to have it quite often during my college days in Pune though me being a north Indian , I like almost most of South Indian food.
