South Indian - Part 2

After the initial hurdle of "Sambhar" out of the way, the next filling delicacy on the line is Uttapam. And it can be made of rice or daal or semolina *rava or suji*. And personally rava Uttapam is my favourite as its the fastest one to make.

So without further ado.... here we go!

Rava Uttapam or Semolina Uttapam

Ingredients --
2 cups of Semolina
1 tomato finely chopped
1 medium onion finely chopped
2 green/red chillies finely chopped
1/2 green capsicum finely chopped
1 cup of natural yogurt
1 spoon of Eno *yes the bubbly thing for upset stomach!* :)
Chilli flakes
Salt to taste

Method --
*There are two ways to do this -
a] You mix all the above ingredients and geta thick paste and will be spread on a flat girdle *tava* and cooked.
b] You mix everything except the vegetables. Then spread the mixture on the flat girdle and sprinkle the vegetables on top and press them so they bury in the mixture.

Both work just as well!! Depending if what is easier for you to flip over.

1. Mix your ingredients chosing one of the options above. Add the yogurt to other slowly... ensuring that the paste does not get too runny and it may not stay together!
(Insure that if you are chosing Option B - to have a thicker paste as all your veggies on the top will make the thing heavy on one side.)
2. Heat a flat girdle and spread some oil.
3. Take a large spoonful and spread the mixture as around over the girdle. Sprinkle oil at the edges of the uttapam.
4. Can check the bottom by lifting slightly from the sides. When cooked medium brown, flip to the other side and let it cook.

READY!! You can enjoy this with Sambhar or Coconut Chutney or my Yogurt Coconut Dip coming up next!
