South Indian Uttapam

South Indian Uttapam

Uttapam is a South Indian breakfast dish made from a fermented batter of rice, urad dal (a kind of lentil), and fenugreek seeds. Once prepared and poured onto a pan, the optimal texture is crispy on the edges and soft in the center.

Pleasant and lightly sour in flavor, uttapam is like the savory cousin to the sweet breakfast pancake we’re all familiar with.

Overall, this recipe is pretty simple, but the fermentation of the batter step could be tricky depending on your experience working with ferments. Luckily, the fermentation period is short for this recipe, so you don’t need to worry about monitoring the batter for very long. Overnight in most climates is ideal, so you can simply prepare the batter the night before you want to enjoy uttapam for breakfast.

For the Batter:
  • 3 cups Sona Masuri (Masoori) rice, or idli rice
  • 1 cup urad dal (black gram)
  • 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
  • 3 cups water, more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt

For the Toppings:
  • Ghee or vegetable oil, as needed
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies, such as serrano, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
