Instant Rava/ semolina and Poha/ flattened rice masala Uthappa

This instant Rava and poha masala Uthappa is a saviour on a lazy Sunday morning. You can serve it with a Chutney or a Molgapudi if you aren’t in a mood to make a chutney. Maximum time taken is fifteen minutes. I thank my friend Sushmitha Shenoy Shanbhag for this lovely recipe. Recipe link to the Chutney and Molgapudi given below.


1 cup or 250 gms Rava/ semolina

1/2 cup or 125 gms Poha/ flattened rice

1/2 cup Idli rava

1 cup sour curds whisked well

9 green chillies

2 Inch piece of ginger

4 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves

1 large onion sliced or chopped as desired

1 tomato sliced or chopped

Oil for roasting the Uthappa

1/2 tsp Eno fruit salt



Powder the poha and tip it into a bowl. Drop in the idli rava and rava too. Add salt the whisked curd and water enough to make a batter of pouring consistency. Grind the green chillies and ginger to a coarse paste. Add it to the batter. Add finely chopped coriander leaves, mix , cover and keep aside for ten minutes. You will notice that the rava and poha have absorbed all the moisture. Add some water to make a batter of pouring consistency. Add the fruit salt and a tsp of water over it to activate it. Mix and pour a ladleful of the batter on a hot tava/ skillet. Sprinkle the finely chopped onions and tomatoes or place the sliced ones gently on the Uthappa. Drizzle with oil, cover and roast on a medium flame. Flip. Roast on the other side too. Serve hot with chutney.

This proportion makes 10 medium sized Uthappa.
