'U' for Uttapam with Idli batter

Uttapam is traditionally made with tomatoes or an onion-chilli mix; other common ingredient choices are coconut or mixed vegetables. It is a dosa like dish which is made by cooking the ingredeints in the batter.I have used Idli batter and  garnished with toppings like chopped onions, green chillies, tomatoes and little jeera too. Many of us use our leftover Idli batter for preparing them. Nowadays, ready made instant mixes are also available in the market for making Uttapams.They  are good when served in combination with chutneys (my fav ginger pickle) and sambar.

Serves 2 people ( I used 2 cups to make 3-4)
Cooking or Preparation Time 10-15 mins for 3-4 Uttapams

Ingredients :

Idli batter - 3 cups
Onions (1 medium) , Tomatoes( 1 medium), Green Chillies (2), Corainder(1/2 cup)-finely chopped
Cumin/ Jeera seeds - sprinkle on each Uttapam - 1/4 tbsp (optional)
Oil for frying

Method :
  1. Heat a non stick pan preferably and pour spoonfuls of batter on it and spread it in a circular motion.
  2. Now add the toppings on it and then put oil on the corners.
  3. Let it heat for few mins till you notice that it is turning color and remove it from heat.
  4. Serve hot with your favorite chutney or sambar.
