Uthappam


Ingredients
For Batter
Idli rice- 4 cups
Urad dal(whole)-1 cup
fenugreek seeds- 1 tsp
salt to taste
For Uthappam
Red onions- 2 chopped finely
tomatoes- 1 chopped finely
green chillie-1 chopped finely
ginger- a small piece chopped finely
coriander leaves - a few chopped finely

Method

Wash and soak the rice and and dal+fenugreek seperately for 4 hrs. Grind the dal first into a smooth paste by adding water little by little. Then grind the rice seperately into a fine paste. Mix the dal and the rice paste together , add salt and keep aside for 8 hrs or more, till the batter is fermented well. This is the basic dosa batter.
U can make uthappam with this basic dosa batter. But uthappams will taste best when the batter becomes a bit sour , that is after 2 or 3 days. So usually i make uthappams with the left over dosa batter.
Heat tava and spread little oil on it. Pour a ladleful of batter and spread the batter into a thick pancake with the ladle. Add little of the chopped veggies and drizzle a tsp of oil on the sides. When it is cooked on one side, carefully turn over and cook for a couple of minutes.
Serve hot with idli podi or any chutney.

Suganya said...

For the red color, I add carrot instead of tomato. Sometimes, tomatoes make uthappam soggy. Yrs look perfect. Great to see you blogging, Prema.
