After our vacation in India  this time, we kind of got used to a  habit of eating an elaborate breakfast daily.Since my mum in law  also came with us this time, we  continued  doing that here too . After spending nearly 40 days here  she went back to India  last  weekend. I am finding it a bit depressing especially the loneliness after a busy 2-3 months :( Now we are back to our cereals in the morining and finding it a bit boring ! Uthappam was a one breakfast menu we had when she was here, I like it a lot and love to have it with a little coconut chutney.

Here goes the recipe..


For Dosha batter

Raw rice/idly rice - 1 1/4 cup
Urad dal - 1/2 cup
Cooked rice - fistful
Fenigreek  seeds- 1 tbs

For toppings

Onion - 1 finely chopped
Tomato - 1 finely chopped
Green chillies - 2
Carrot - 1 (grated)
Coriander leaves - finely chopped


1.Soak and grind all the ingridients for dosha batter and ferment it overnight .
2.Add salt to the batter.
3.Heat a nonstick pan and pour and ladle of batter and spread it .Immediately sprinkle th veggies on top and cook it covered for 2-3 minutes.

Serve with coconut chutney !

1.If you are in cold country its better to place the batter in a preheated oven at 50- 60 degree centigrade,I  repeat heating it 2-3 times .
2.Its always  better not to flip the uthappam,you will not get a good looking uthappam .
