Fresh Coriander leaves
Salt as needed
1.Soak Urad dal, rice, menthi seeds and toor dal in water for about 6 hours. Add salt and grind it into very smooth paste. Ferment the batter in warm place for about 8 to 10 hours. This batter is used for making dosas and uttapam. (Some people use poha 1 cup,Urad dal 1 cup and Rice 1 cup uttapam but most of them use the dosa batter as it is easy to make both) In uttapam we generally use green chillies and ginger also. But I made for my kid who is toddler so I did not use them.
2. Cut tomato and coriander leaves into small pieces or put them a chopper or food proceesor and cut then into 1 cm piece use chop or pulse mode. Keep the tomato pieces aside.
3. Heat a your non-stick pan or tawa after it is heated turn it into medium low flame. Use a round serving spoon to spread the batter thick into 3 inch rounds on the top of batter spread the vegetables.
4. Spread the oil on the sides of uttapam . You can make 4 small or kid uttapams on a tawa. Gently press the vegetables on the uttapam with spatula and when it is light brown remove the lid and turn the Uttapam on the other side a spatula.
5. When it is cooked on both sides flip it iver to the first side and after a half minute serve with peanut chutney or cocunut chutney or tomato cutney, podi or sambar.
