Uttapam is a type of South Indian pan cake, similar to dosa in terms of ingredients and method of preparation. Utappam is served with a topping of onions, tomatoes and chillies which gives it the look of a pizza.

Although uttapam looks and tastes like dosa, it is somewhat different. Uttapam is thick in contrast to dosa which is thin and crispy. Moreover, it is not rolled with some filling like dosa. A topping of tomatoes and onions is added to uttapam to enhance its taste. The dish is also served with sambhar and coconut chutney. Uttapam is generally eaten for breakfast.

To make uttapam, the following ingredients are required.

4 cups white rice, 1 cup urad dal, 2 cups of aval or flattened rice, 1 chopped onion, chopped cilantro leaves, 3 chopped green chillies and salt.

Let the rice grains soak in water overnight. Soak the daal for 1 hour. Move the aval in a grinder and grind it dry. Make a paste of rice wet rice and daal separately by grinding them. Now mix all these ingredients together and allow them to ferment for one day. Next, pour the batter in a heated tava or griddle and make circular pan cakes. Apply some oil or ghee to facilitate the cooking. Without flipping the uttapam, add the chopped onions, tomatoes and chillies on top of it. Flip and cook it evenly. Serve the uttapams hot with sambhar and coconut chutney.
