Uttappam / Uthappam

Uttappam / Uthappam is a delicious south-Indian dish which resembles Dosa. But we  dont make it thin and crispy like our regular dosa but like a thick pancake. Its also known as Indian Pizza / Indian Pancake.


Raw Rice ( Pachari ) ~ 1 cup
Cooked Rice ~ 1/2 cup
Urad Dal ( Uzhunnu ) ~ 1/2 cup
Fenugreek Seeds ~ 1/2 tsp
Onions ~  1 No
Tomato ~ 1 No
Chopped Coriander leaves ~ 1/2 cup
Green chillies ~ 3-4 Nos
Red chilly powder ~ 1/4 tsp

  • First wash raw rice and urad dal and then soak raw rice and fenugreek seeds with enough water. Then soak urad dal in water in an another vessel. They both should be soaked in water for atleast 5-6 hours.
  • Then grind raw rice, fenugreek seeds, boiled rice and urad dal to a smooth batter by adding water little by little.The batter should be of thick pouring consistency.
  • Mix the batter nicely and keep it covered in warm place for atleast 10 hours for fermentation. Note: If you are grinding in the evening then you can keep it overnight for fermentation. 
  • After the batter is fermented and raised, mix it nicely and add enough salt. Then in a vessel mix chopped onions, chopped green chillies, chopped tomato , chopped coriander leaves, red chilly powder and  little salt and keep it aside.
  • Then heat a griddle / tawa in a medium low flame and grease it with little oil. Then pour a big ladle full of batter on the tawa and using the back side of the ladle spread it to a thick circle. Uthappams should be thicker than the normal dosa, so please make sure not to make it thin.
  • Then immediately after that sprinkle the chopped vegetable mix on the top of the batter using your hand or spoon. Then cover it with a lid and cook for about 3-4 minutes in a medium low flame and then turn it around using a spatula and cook the other side for about 1-2 minutes. 
Serve uthappam with Chammanthi and Sambar
