Uttapams are traditional South Indian breakfast, which are generally had with coconut chutney and sambar. These rice-lentil pancakes are nutritious and wholesome. I simply love this mini version of it which are both appealing and appetizing.
You can go wild with your imagination regarding the toppings. For a non-veg. version, boiled & shredded chicken, cooked keema, sausages, etc. can be added. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
- 3-4 cups idli / dosa batter
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 2 green chilies, chopped
- 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
- oil to shallow fry
- coconut chutney & sambar to serve
In a bowl, mix together onion, tomatoes, green chilies and coriander leaves. Keep aside. Heat 1 tsp. oil in a non-stick pan and drop a small ladleful of the batter.
Sprinkle some of the onion mix over it and fry on a medium flame for a minute or two. Flip it over and let it cook further for a minute.
Transfer to a serving plate. Make similar uttapams with the remaining batter. Serve them with coconut chutney and sambar.
