Its more often nowadays, that I make idli /dosa batter , sounds tedious, but then you can be completely relaxed when you have the batter in hand. There are so many things which you can make with it without having to spend much of your precious time in the kitchen. So apart from the usual dosas and idlis , one of these days, I tried making the vegetable uttapam for breakfast. And the colourful beauties were enjoyed by all. You can use your choice of vegetables like cabbage or just sliced onions and green chillies. You can make this for your kids too with their favourite vegetables!!!
- Soak the rice and udid dal seperately. First grind the udid dal to a smooth paste. Then grind the rice to a smooth paste.Combine them together. Add salt and mix well. Keep it overnight (8 hours) preferably and allow it it ferment. Your batter is ready.
- Now heat oil in the pan. Add the chopped vegetables, add salt and stir fry them till they become tender.
- Heat a dosa pan. Pour a ladleful of batter onto the pan and spread by rolling them into a circle with base of the ladle.Add little oil on the edges. Add the vegetables on the top and gently press it into the batter. When the base is cooked and is golden brown, turn and flip with a spatula and cook on the other side too. Serve hot with sambar and chutney.
