Plain Uttapam & Coconut Chutney



This recipe is from Mallika Badrinath's cookbook. Uttapam and dosa can be prepared using the same batter. Dosas are usually crisp and thin while uttapams are thick like pancakes. If you want soft, spongy, white dosas or uttapams, this is the recipe.

Ingredients:
Raw Rice or Sona Masuri Rice - 3 Cups
Whole Urud Dal - 1 Cup
Fenugreek Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Water as required (roughly 5 cups)
Salt

Method:
Rinse and drain rice and dal.
Soak them together for 3 hours along with fenugreek seeds.
Grind to a smooth batter adding water gradually.
I always use wet grinder to prepare idli/dosa batter.
Add salt and mix well using your hands.
Allow the batter to ferment for 16-20 hours.

To prepare Uttapams:
Mix the batter well. If it is thick, add little water.
Heat a griddle.
When it is hot, grease it with oil.
Take a laddle full of batter.
Pour it in the center.
Do not spread it.
Drizzle oil around the corners.
After a minute, flip it and cook the other side.
Serve with chutney.



Coconut Chutney:
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Almonds/roasted unsalted peanuts - 10
Green Chilli - 1 or 2
Hing - a pinch
Ginger - small piece
Coriander leaves - a handful
Salt

Seasoning:
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp

Method:
Grind all the ingredients with water to a smooth paste.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds and allow to crackle.
Pour the seasoning over ground mixture.

Notes:
To make onion uttapam, add chopped onions, green chilli, curry leaves, coriander leaves to the batter and follow the same procedure.
