Steps In Making
- Soak poha for 10 minutes in water and then drain the excess water.
- Now grind the poha with little water till it forms into a smooth batter.
- Remove it in a large bowl. Add semolina, yoghurt, water and mix until well combined. The batter should have medium consistency.
- Let it rest for around 5-10 minutes.
- Now add baking soda and mix well. The poha uttapam batter is ready.
- For the toppings in a bowl add chopped onions, tomatoes, red and yellow bell peppers, fresh coriander, salt and mix well.
- Place a non-stick pan over medium flame and add some oil in it. Once hot, add a spoonful of the uttapam batter and spread it evenly to form a round shape. Make sure you do not thin it too much, as uttapam’s are generally thick.
- Now top it with the vegetables and gently press them a little with your fingers, so they don’t come out when you flip them.
- Cover it with a lid and cook for 2-3 minutes on medium-low flame or until the bottom is perfectly cooked and gets a light golden colour.
- You will notice the sides will begin to puff a little, which is a sign that the uttapam has cooked from the bottom.
- Now with the help of a spatula, gently flip it on the other side and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Once done, transfer the uttapams on a plate. Now similarly make the rest of the uttapams and serve them hot with chutney or sambhar.
- You can add any veggies of your choice as toppings, like grated carrots, capsicum, bell peppers etc.
- If you dont have baking soda then you can replace it with eno.
- If the batter becomes thin then add some semolina.
