Quick utappam

All credit goes to a MAA TV show called "Maa Voori Vanta". I saw that yesterday afternoon and tried it at home. It came out good. I should say it can be used as quick snack or as breafast. Try it whenever you have time. So here goes the recipe:

Maida (All purpose flour) - 2 table spoons
Senagapindi (Chick pea flour) - 2 table spoons
Biyyampindi (Rice flour) - 2 table spoons
Onions - Chopped - 1/2 cup
Tomatos - Chopped - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 3-4 depending on your taste, chopped
Coriander - 2 table spoons
Ginger - 1/2 table spoon (Optional)
Jeera (cumin seeds) - 1/2 tea spoon (I added Jeera powder instead)
Salt to taste
For topping use karivepaku podi or any podi of your choice.

Method of preparation:
1. Take chopped tomato, onions, green chillies, coriander, ginger(optional), Jeera or Jeera powder, Maida, Senagapindi, biyyampindi, salt. Mix all above with hand.

2. Add little water and make sure it is not watery. It should be a not too loose and not too think consistency. (little think than dosa batter). Adjust salt and others according to your taste.

3. Take a tawa and let it heat. Spread small amount of oil on tawa. Now add a laddle or two of the batter mixed above and spread it like utappam (not too thick and not too thin like dosa).

4. Add very little oil on top and let it heat. once the edges are done (or changes color), then turn the utappam onto other side and spread a little oil on the edges of the utappam.

5. After both sides of the utappam is done, add Karivepaku podi or any spicy/soft podi of your choice on it and serve with chutney.

Try with and let me know how it turns out.

1. Although in Show they mentioned only two table spoons I added little more of the powders to make the batter kind. You may adjust all the quantities depending on your like.

2. I would also recommend adding grated carrot to make it little healthy dish. :).
