Instant Vegetable Cornmeal Uthappam/Glutenfree Cornmeal Oothappam

Uthappam/Oothappam is a thick pancake which is usually prepared with leftover dosa batter, uthappams are almost like dosa but with toppings. Its one of the known South Indian dish after idlies and dosas. Uthappam is traditionally made with toppings such as tomatoes, onions,chillies,capsicum and coriander leaves and however other ingredients like chopped mixed vegetables, coconut are also used for making this dish. Often served with sambar or coconut chutney, uthappam can be prepared with different variations. Nowadays, many millets are used in making dosa batter,hence you can also dish out some millet based uthappams. However instant versions of uthappams do exists. And my today's recipe is one among those instant versions. One of the easiest dish which can be prepared easily with semolina/rava or else with cornmeal rava.

Am running this week's blogging marathon with Breakfast staple with different grain as theme. After two different breakfast dishes, here comes one of the easiest breakfast dish which i quickly whisked with cornmeal. Cornmeal works prefect for dishing out some delicious uthappams. With simple preparation and usual cooking process, one can finish their breakfast with less efforts. Though you can add varieties of vegetables for toppings, i opted for carrot, capsicum and tomatoes. How colourful its looks na. We had these thick pancakes with sambar for our breakfast. If you want a satisfying, quite filling breakfast, dont forget to give a try to this dish.

Instant Cornmeal Rava Uthappam

Apply oil, once the tawa is hot, pour a ladle of the batter and spread it as a circle.

Drizzle some oil and sprinkle enough vegetables on the top.

Give a press with a spatule and cook in medium flame with lid closed.

Once the batter gets cooked, flip the uthappam and cook well.

Remove from the pan and serve with chutney or sambar.
