Tomato onion uttappa - South Indian uttapam recipe - how to make onion uttappam

Tomato onion uttappa or uttappam recipe - This is a very delicious South Indian breakfast dish loved by all Indians. It is soft and consumed with coconut chutney and sambar. Making uttappa is not difficult. You can also make it by using dosa batter. The secret behind the taste of uttapam depends on  the correct combination of its ingredients and the level of fermentation. For soft and aromatic uttapam, medium level of fermentation is required and too much fermentation makes it sour. I love uttappam a lot and make it at least once in a week. So, sharing the recipe with you all.

 Tomato onion uttapam recipe.

½   cup rice
3/4 cup split black grams urad dal 
1/4 cup bengal gram / chana dal
A fistful of poha / beaten rice
10  Fenugreek Seeds / methi 
Salt to taste
Oil  as required

For the garnishing
1 onion, chopped 
1 small tomato, chopped
1 green chilli, chopped

  • Combine  together the rice, urad dal, chana dal and fenugreek seeds and wash them thoroughly. Soak them using enough water for about 4-5 hours.
  • After 5 hours, drain the water and grind them into a smooth paste. Soak poha for 2 minutes and add it in the last round
  • Add sufficient water to  make the medium consistency paste. The batter should not be too thin. Mix the batter well and keep it aside in a warm place for about 8-9 hours.
  • When the batter fermented, the quantity of the batter doubles in size. While making the uttapam, add the salt and mix well..

Making the uttapam

  • Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat and apply oil on it. Spread the batter on the pan to form a round and thick uttapam (do not spread it too thin)
  • Sprinkle some chopped onions, tomatoes and green chilies on it and pat it  with the back of a spoon. Spread 1/4 tsp oil around the uttapam.
  • Cook covered on medium flame till the base become firm, flip it and cook  for 2 - 3 minutes. 
  • Transfer the uttapam to a serving plate. Serve hot with chutney and sambar

Note : If you want to make the batter sour, add 2 tsp yogurt  to it.
