What is Vegetable Uttapam?

Thick pancake with crisp edges and soft and spongy insides topped with vegetables, a popular South Indian breakfast, is vegetable uttapam. This is the third most popular South Indian food item after idli and dosa, according to me :). I use a common batter for my idli, dosa, uttapam and other such recipes. This recipe also uses the leftover idli dosa batter. The vegetable uttapam can be customized, not the uttapam in fact, its toppings. You can add in vegetable as per choice and availability. It is a regular preparation at my place because it is easy and simple to make and is definitely very healthy and wholesome.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
