Instant Rava Uttapam

Uttapam is a traditional South Indian breakfast pancake made with a particular batter and served with chutney or sambhar. There are so many ways of making this, but you can’t beat 15 min prep time. It’s so easy to make this and it will make you feel like you’re eating a traditional South Indian breakfast in INDIA. It’s not a traditional uttapam, but it tastes pretty darn close to it so I decided to give it a shot and I was not disappointed.

This recipe yields about 6-7 small uttapams as shown in the picture so at best, serving size of 2. Double the ingredients if you plan on using this recipe for 3-4 people.

– Rava (aka semolina; can be found in indian grocery stores) – 1 cup
– Yogurt – 1/2 cup
– Water – 1/2 cup
– Salt – 3/4 tsp

1. Combine rava, yogurt, salt and water in bowl. Let it rest for 15 min.
2. Add 2-3 tbsp of water and mix water. Batter shouldn’t be too thick or too thin – should be able to easily spread it.
3. Grease nonstick tawa or flat pan with cooking spray. Set heat to medium flame. Pour small amount of batter on a pan – make a circle uttapam (similar to pancake). Add chopped veggies. Drizzle oil around the border.
4. Flip over once base cooked.
5. Once both sides cooked, serve with ketch up or any other chutney of your choice.
