  • 1 cup - Urad dal powder
  • 1 cup - fine Sooji or Semolina
  • 2 cups - Rice Sooji
  • 1 cup - Curds or Buttermilk
  • 1.5 tsp - Salt
  • 1/4 tsp - Hing Powder
  • Finely chopped Green Chillies as per taste (or 1-2 medium hot)

How to Make Quick Uthappam

  • Mix all the ingredients well. Add enough water to make a 'dropping dough' like cake or idli batter. Beat mixture well.
  • Keep aside for 5-10 minutes to let it soak in the moisture. Add more water if the dough is too thick.
  • Heat a flat tawa or frying pan, spread a tsp of oil on it and let it remain on low heat for 3-4 minutes for the pan to absorb the oil so that the dough does not stick to it.
  • Take a ladle of dough and spread it on one side of the pan into a 4 inch round. You can make two or three uthappams of this size in a large tawa.
  • Now spoon a little oil all round the dough and a few drops on the top also. Cover and cook over medium heat till the underside is golden brown. You can see the edges browning.
  • Turn the uthappams to lightly brown the other side and remove.
  • Serve with coconut chutney, sambhar or the traditional idli-dosa red chutney powder.
