A healthier version to the traditional Urad Dal/ Black gram dal and Rice Uthappa is the one made of Urad and Semolina / Rava. Needs no fermentation and can be enjoyed with a Chutney or Sambhar or both! Have already posted the Idli and the Appo that one can make with the same batter. You can find it under the catagory of ‘Breakfast Eats’ of this website. Recipe Link to the chutney is posted below.
- 250 gms urad dal
- 500 gms Rava
- 16 Green chillies
- 1 carrot
- 4 onions
- Coriander leaves
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- Kidney bean sized piece of Hing/asafoetida
- 10 sprigs curry leaves
- Oil or Ghee/clarified butter to roast the Uthappa
Wash and soak the Urad dal for four hours. Grind it in the wet grinder non stop for half an hour adding a little water at a time to a smooth batter of dropping consistency. Tip the Rava into a bowl. Add two glasses of water to it and mix it thoroughly. Drop it into the ground batter. Grind the green chillies, hing and ginger to a coarse paste. Add it to the Urad Rava batter along with the finely chopped curry leaves and salt. Mix thoroughly. Chop the onions and coriander leaves fine. Grate the carrot. Keep all the three aside. Heat a griddle / tava. Pour a ladleful of batter on it and spread it to a six inch diameter thick circle. Top it with the chopped onion, carrot and coriander leaves. Drizzle with Ghee or oil. Cover and cook till the underside is roasted. Flip. Roast till done. Remove and cut into pieces if required or serve as is along with Chutney.
