Tomato Onion Uthappam

Posted by Sneha on April 2, 2007

Uthappam is one more South Indian breakfast delicacy. If you have left over idli batter, this is a breeze to make. Else, here’s how to.



2 cups Idli rice
1 cup Urad dal
Handful of poha/avalakki
Handful of cooked rice

Soak the idli rice and urad dal for about 6 hours, and grind them to a thick batter along with the poha and cooked rice.
Let it ferment overnight, or keep in a warm place for about 8-10 hours.

To make Uthappam, you will need:

Finely sliced small red onions
Thin sliced tomatoes
Fine sliced green chillies and coriander leaves.


Pour the batter over a hot tava like you would, for a dosa, garnish with all the ingredients above.
Serve hot with onion chutney or coconut chutney.
