Rava uttapam is a simple pancake/uttapam prepared with just rava and yogurt and topped with finely chopped onions and tomatoes. This uthappam comes to your rescue when you are very hungry or short of time as it can be made instantly. It tastes very delicious when eaten hot from the tawa. Today we will learn how to make rava uttapam following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
Finely chop onion, tomatoes (discard seeds), coriander leaves and green chillies. You can even add finely chopped bell peppers (any color) if preferred. For kids you can omit green chillies.
In a bowl, mix together rava, curd and salt. Add little water, mix well and let it sit for 20-30 minutes.
After 20-30 minutes, if the batter is too thick, you can add more water to bring it to uttapam batter consistency (neither too thick nor watery).
Add a pinch of baking soda or cooking soda and mix well. Mix all the topping together in a bowl and keep it ready.
Heat a tawa/griddle, when it is hot, pour a ladle of batter and spread it lightly. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the uttapam. The pancake/uttapam should be thick.
Top the uttapam with the prepared toppings and cook covered on medium heat.
Once the bottom has turned golden brown (you can lift it with a spatula and check), drizzle half a tsp of oil over the toppings (to prevent it from sticking to the tawa) and flip the pancake to the other side.
When the other side is cooked, remove the oothapam from the tawa and serve hot with instant tomato chutney.
Note– Do not allow the rava + curd mixture to sit for more than 30 minutes.
Allow the uthappam to get cooked well on medium heat before flipping it over.
