Direction To Make

  • Prepare the batter for uttapam by the procedure described in the dosa recipe, but make the batter is slightly thicker than the dosa batter. Add salt and mix well to the batter as per taste.
  • Heat a normal cast iron griddle (tawa), dosa tava or a non-stick tava over medium heat. We recommend use a non-stick tava to prevent the uttapam sticking on tava. Pour a few drops of ghee or oil over the tava and spread it. When the tava  gets hot, pour a ladle-full batter over it and spread the batter by turning the back of ladle in a clockwise direction over the batter.
  • Mix all the chopped vegetables like onion, tomato, capsicum and green chilli, coriander leaves in a bowl.
  • Spread mix chopped vegetables on top of it and press it slightly using a spatula.
  • Pour 1 teaspoon of ghee on the edges of uttapam. Cook it for about 2-3 minutes, if you like the thicker base then you should cover it with a lid while cooking or the thicker base needs more time to cook.
  • Flip the uttapam to cook from the other side. Flip over and cook until both sides are well cooked.
  • Cook the remaining batter like wise. Uttapam is ready to be served. Serve hot uttapam with coconut chutney.
