Vegetable Uttapam

March 22, 2014

A traditional delicacy from down South which literally means 'poured appam' in Tamil. Uttapam is a dosa-like preparation made with the batter of rice, split urad dal and fenugreek seeds.

2 cups  parboiled rice
1 cup raw rice
1/2 cup split Bengal Gram (Urad dal)
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
1 tsp salt 

1 cup chopped vegetables (Onion, Carrot, Capsicum & Coriander leaves )
2 green chillies chopped fine.
2 Tomatoes cut in roundales for decoration
An iron griddle or tawa
Oil to smear the pan for cooking the uttapam

Soak rice, daal and methi in water for 5-6 hours.  Grind this to a fine paste,  and leave to ferment 5-6 hours. After the batter is fermented add salt and enough water to make a dropping consistency.
In a bowl add all the vegetables, green chillies salt to taste and mix well.

Heat tawa, and brush oil over it. When hot, pour about 1 cup of batter on to it . It will spread a little  sprinkle the vegetable  mixture and arrange the tomato roundales on top cover and cook for 3-4 minutes. Open and check when the edges start browning a bit, pour a trail of oil/butter around it.   This uttapam cannot be flipped over.   Place the uttapam in a plate and serve hot with chutney or sauce.
