INSTANT BESAN RAVA UTTAPAM
Apart from idli-dosa, we in South India have different dishes too for breakfast. One of them is the Uttapam which is thick and dosa-like. Generally, to make idli-dosa, we need to soak, grind and ferment the ingredients for 8 hours or longer to make the batter. In cold places, this can take even longer.
With time being at a premium these days, dishes that can be made fast are being preferred. In this context, elsewhere in this blog you will find recipes for breakfast items which can be made relatively fast, such as:-
Today's recipe is for "Instant Besan Rava Uttapam" which again can be made relatively fast. It is made with chickpea flour (besan) and semolina (rava/sooji). In making the topping for this, you can use vegetables of your choice such as onion, capsicum, tomato, carrot etc.
I have made small sized Utappams today and used Onion, Tomato and Carrots for the topping. This uttapam goes well with a chutney of your choice. Today I have served it with a chutney made with fried gram dal and coriander leaves.
It tasted great!
