BREAKFAST is a must in our house , I have to also got to pack my sons tiffin early in the morning at around 6.30 so i am always on a look out for something that is nutritious , healthy and quick . This uttappam was a very spontaneous thing that i did , I woke up late and just could not think of something nutritious for his tiffin, which could be made in 30 mins. normally in such a situation, i just pack some jam and butter sandwiches or chapati rolled with ghee and jaggery [my son loves this], but the problem was NO BREAD!!! or atta kneaded . So standing near the kitchen platform in a daze, i found my jars with the various attas staring at me and saying " pls use me to cook something delicious". I had to comply , so was born this delicious UTTAPPAM which i hope you will find interesting too.

Here is the recipe


1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup jowar flour
½ cup besan or chickpea flour
½ cup rice flour
1 medium sized onion finely chopped
1 small tomato very finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
Finely chopped coriander leaves
1 tsp red chilli powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste 1 tsp sugar powder or granulated sugar


Mix together all the flours in a bowl
Add all the ingredients and get a pouring consistency by adding enough water
Heat a griddle or tawa
When hot, reduce the flame and smear with a little oil.
Pour a ladle full of uttappam batter to form a thick pancake like circle.
Use a non stick pan as the batter contains tomatoes which tend to stick to the pan if the uttapa becomes a little thin.
Make it crisp and brown on both the sides.
Remove smear with a little ghee and eat with any chutney.
I prefer the green coriander coconut chutney or the white coconut chutney. here i had it with a nice sweet and sour mango pickle.

You will find the recipe of MIX DAL DOSA on my other blog.

This uttappam can be made for dinner or lunch too as it has all the ingredients to make it a complete meal.
