South Indian Vegetable Uttapam Recipe
The batter of Uttapam is same which is used for making Dosa. You may add 1/2 tsp fenugreek seed to rice while soaking. That makes the batter more fluffy and spongy.
Once you make a paste of Rice & Urad Dal , keep the batter at room temperature to ferment.
In Summer the fermentation happens quickly compared to winter . In Odisha the temperature goes up to 40 degree C in Summer. Those days the fermented batter gets ready in just 3-4 hours. In winter it takes 6-7 hours.
I have used tomato, onion, capsicum,carrot as different topping . You can experiment with other veggies of your choice.
