Mix Dal Veggie uttapam

Guest author: Gauri Naik

I was thinking we have been eating urad dal uttapam always. What happens if we mix some dals and make a uttapam with veggies which kids normally dont eat. This is a very nutritional breakfast with the dals and all the vegetables. So one fine day I made this for breakfast and saw that all the uttapams were over. Check out the recipe.


1 cup Moong Dal (greengram dal)
1 cup Urad Dal (blackgram dal)
Very finely cut cooked Vegetables of your choice.(Carrots, cabbage, corn, peas etc)
1/2 tsp Jeera/cumin seds
Pinch of asafeotida/hing
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
3-4 Curry Leaves
2-3 Cut green chillies
1/4 cup Coriander Leaves
1/2 tsp crushed ginger
Salt as per taste

We dont eat onion so I haven't added any. If you like and eat, you can add cut onions also.

Soak the urad dal and moong dal together with little methi seeds may be 4-5 seeds for about 8 hours and grind the dals to a smooth batter. Leave it overnight to ferment.

In a pan add a little ghee, jeera and the mustards seeds. Wait until they splutter. Then add asafoetida, curry leaves, cut green chillies and crushed ginger. Fry well and add this seasoning to the fermented batter and mix well. Cook the vegetables of ur choice and add them to the batter. Finely cut some coriander leaves and add them to the batter. Also add some salt as per your taste. Mix the batter well. The batter should be like the dosa batter consistency.

Heat the laddle and take a spoonful of the batter and pour it on the laddle. Do not spread it like a dosa - just move the laddle so that it remains thicker. Spread some oil on the sides of the uttapam. Close the laddle with a lid. Then turn it on the other side and wait till the other side gets cooked. Take it out on the plate and spread some ghee if you like. If you dont apply ghee also it tastes good.

Serve it hot with coconut chutney.
