VEGETABLE UTTAPPA!

Uttappa or Uttappam:

Uttappam is a classic south Indian dish which is much loved by all Indians.It is made of Rice and Urad dal batter which is fermented overnight and used next day.To get a tangy taste of Uttappam,you let the batter sit for one more day and used to make pancake.Chopped vegetables are sprinkled on top as it cooks,baked just on one side covered with lid for sometime,it is delicious to eat for breakfast or brunch.


Uttappams are served with Coconut chutney or any chutney you like.Hope you will tryit and enjoy the taste of this classic South Indian dish.You can also use Idli batter to make these.Here is an easy recipe for any left-over dosa batter!!

You Need:

2 Cups day old sour Dosa Batter, Any vegetable you like.

CHOP:

Finely chop 1 red onion,
cilantro,
Curry Leaves,
1/2" grated ginger,
1/2 tsp crushed Cumin Seeds,
1/4 cup finely grated Carrots
1-2 chopped Tomatoes
1/4 cup minced Green Bell Pepper
Salt

METHOD:

1. Mince all the above ,add little salt and keep aside. Drain any water before use.
2. Pour Dosa in a thick circle on a non-stick pan. Sprinkle 1 or more tbsp of chopped mixture quickly on top of dosa, press a little on top,cover and cook.
3. After the bottom is golden,remove and serve hot with yellow roasted chana chutney.

Note: If you would like to cook both sides of Uttappam, carefully flip the dosa and cook the other side.It is a liitle hard to remove it beacuse of the loose vegetables,but you can do it with a non-stick pan.
