Ingredients for the batter

  • 1 Cup Semolina/Rava/Sooji
  • 1 Cup yogurt at room temperature
  • 1 tsp ginger and green chili paste
  • Salt to taste

Ingredients for the Uttapam

  • 1 large size onion chopped
  • 1 large size tomato fine chopped
  • 5 - 6 curry leaves chopped
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Ghee/Oil for cooking uttapam


  • To prepare the batter for the uttapam, in a bowl mix together semolina, curd, ginger paste and salt. Stir to combine. Add little water to form smooth lump free batter of dropping consistency.
  • Whisk batter for 5 - 10 minutes using either hand blender or wire whisk.
  • After 20 - 30 minutes, if the batter is too thick, you can add more water to bring it to spreading dosa like consistency.
  • Mix together chopped onion, tomato, curry leaves in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a non stick griddle or uttapam pan ( buy it here ) over medium heat. Pour one small ladle of uthappam batter, do not spread it out much like dosa. Uttapam is bit thick.
  • Pour a teaspoon of oil/ghee from the sides of the uttapam.
  • Sprinkle a tablespoon of chopped onion mixture over the uttapam along with salt, pepper, chaat masala or idli podi.
  • Flip the uthapam when cooked from the base.
  • When the uthappams are crisp and cooked on both sides, they are ready to be served.
  • Serve Onion and Tomato Uttapam with coconut chutney or tomato chutney.
