For rava uttapam batter:

  • 1 cup rava/suji/semolina
  • 1 cup yogurt/curd
  • salt as per taste
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup water

For the topping:

  • ½ cup very finely chopped onions
  • ½ cup very finely chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon very finely chopped green chillies
  • ½ cup very finely chopped coriander leaves
  • ¼ cup grated carrots
  • salt to sprinkle on the topping

Other ingredients:

  • oil for smearing or applying on the dosa


Making of rava uttapam batter:

  • Firstly, take a bowl, add rava, yogurt, salt, baking soda, water, mix all the ingredients well with a hand whisker.
  • Mix the batter without lumps and make sure the batter is not thin and it has to be slightly thick.
  • Let the batter sit for 15-20 minutes.

Making of rava uttapam:

  • Mix the batter well again.
  • Take a griddle or a tawa, heat it.
  • Brush oil all over the tawa.
  • Take an onion slice and wipe all over the tawa.
  • Take a ladle full of rava uttapam batter and drop it at the centre and spread in circular motion until we get a small round pancake.
  • Add finely chopped onions all over the uttapam.
  • Add chopped tomatoes all over the uttapam.
  • Spread chopped coriander leaves all over the uttapam.
  • Similarly add grated carrots all over the uttapam.
  • Also add very finely chopped green chillies too but can be skipped if one is making it for kids.
  • Sprinkle salt accordingly on the vegetable topping.
  • Smear oil around the corners of uttapam and all over on the uttapam.
  • Cook the down side for about 2-3 minutes on low flame.
  • Flip the uttapam very carefully and cook the other side too for a minute.
  • Flip again and cook for few seconds.
  • Take the uttapam out on a plate.
  • Continue making rest of the uttapams in a similar manner.
  • Serve the uttapam with idli or dosa chutney.


1. Do not attempt to make big uttapams as the batter might break after dropping on the tawa and when spreading it.
2. Always while making uttapam, the size of the uttapam should be maintained very small and thick.
3. Topping quantity can be increased or decreased as per one's choice.
4. Less topping or more topping can be adjusted as per our own desire.
5. If uttapam is being made for kids, then try to avoid chopped green chillies as they may be too hot for them to eat.
6. Allowing the batter to rest for few minutes help in getting perfect uttapams and therefore if one has time to let the batter sit for few minutes, it is a better option to obtain tasty uttapams.
