INSTANT UTHAPAM /UTHAPAM WITH COCONUT AND MIX VEGGIES

Uthappam is a classic South Indian breakfast. This savoury pancake is a type of dosa which is cooked quite thicker with some toppings. These toppings might be only one veggie or mixed vegetables. These veggies are chopped finely and then spread on top of the uthappam while it is being cooked. With veggies, this becomes tasteful and very filling. Like other dosai, this also goes well with sambhar and chutneys

Along with assorted vegetables, I have added fresh coconut in this uthappam. Coconut adds the nutty flavour and I like this very much. I have added some grated coconut in the batter and some as the topping as well. Hope you too would try and love this version of uthappam. Whenever I don’t have the rice-lentil batter ready in hand, I prepare the instant uthappam with sooji/rava and oats. This batter does not require fermentation for hours yet makes fluffy uthappam with the use of soda bicarb or fruit salt(eno)
