Carrot Uttapam (Rice and Lentil Flatbread with Carrots)

Uttapam is a South Indian delicacy made of rice and lentils. In the modern day, Uttapam is also made using semolina as it cuts down on the preparation time yet yields similar results.This recipe is the traditional one.

1. Carrot, 1, shredded
2. green chili, 2 chopped
3. Onion, 1/2 chopped
4. Rice, 2 cups
5. Urad Dal, 1 cup
6. Salt to taste
7. Oil.

1. Soak rice and urad dal overnight with just enough water such that it is covered.
2. Blend rice and urad dal to make a batter. Add water such that the batter is not exactly runny but just about.
3. Add salt to the batter and let it ferment overnight.
Tip: I usually pre-heat oven to 400 degrees for 10 minutes and then leave the batter in the oven for quick fermentation.
4. Mix chili, carrot, and onions into the batter.
5. Pour a ladle of the batter on a non-stick greased pan.
6. When the batter seems to detach from the base, flip and cook on the other side.

Serve warm with Coconut chutney.
