Semolina Uttampam or Pancake is one of the qucikest breakfast option that you can have. Generally this pancake is made with urad dal and rice batter which is soaked overnight and then churned next day.
But there are other ways to make this and the quickest one is to use semolina to skip the overnight batter making process.
I have added here few curry leaves to bring a special curry leaves taste to this mixture.
Ingredients that you need are:
- Onion tomato chopped finely
- Parsley fresh
- Dry spices -turmeric,coriander and cumin
- Salt to taste
- Refined oil
- Curry leaves
- Yogurt 250 gm
- Baking soda 2 teaspoon
Roast the curry leaves in a pan and then turn it into powder with your hands.Take large amount of this as we want to make this Curry leaves flavored pancake.
Roast the semolina in a pan till reddish brown and keep them aside
In a mixing bowl add curd/yogurt , baking soda ,semolina,curry leaves powder, dry spices , salt and make batter
The batter must not be too thick nor too watery ,you can adjust the consistency by adding more semolina or water
Add chopped veggies to this and let this batter rest for 30 minutes.Before you start making the uttapam stir the batter again.
Heat a non stick tawa , drizzle some water drops and wipe this out..this will cool down the temperature and make it uniform
Now put the batter and spread it in the form of disc
after some time put some oil circling the disc and flip it.Cook both sides
Serve this with tomato Ketchup or Coconut chutney…
You can also make plain uttampam , store them in casserole and then serve them like breads with curry or veggies.
