Multigrain Veggie and Cheese Uttapam

Uttapam or ooththappam or Uthappa is a dosa-like dish made by cooking ingredients in a batter. Uttapam is a thick pancake, with toppings  cooked right into the batter. Uttapam is traditionally made with toppings such as tomatoes, onion, chillies, capsicum and cabbage mix, coconut or mixed vegetables. It is often eaten with sambar or chutney.It is popular in South India and you will find it as a part of the breakfast menu.

I have tried to make it a little more healthier by adding the multigrain flour . It enhances the taste and is also nutritious at the same time. I have added cheese for the kids. You can skip if you don’t like cheese.

Recipe for Multigrain  Veggie and Cheese Uttapam:


For Batter:

3 cups rice

1 cup urad dal

Salt to taste


For filling :

1 big onion chopped

1 tomato chopped

1     green bell pepper chopped

1 Tbsp Roasted Green Gram powder

1 Tbsp Roasted quinoa Powder

1 Tbsp Roasted Flaxseed powder

1 Tbsp Bajra Powder

Salt to taste


Gun Powder / Chutney Powder/ Idli podi


For Batter:

Soak the rice and dal individually for 4 to 5 hrs in the water.Grind them individually to make a smooth paste. Add water if required while grinding. Ensure the batter should be a little thick in consistency. Add salt to the batter and mix well. Let it ferment for a few hours. I usually gring dosa / idli batter foe a week and make Uttapam once or twice a week.

For Uttapam:

Add green gram powder, flaxseed powder,quinoa powder,bajra powder and veggies to the batter. Add salt if needed.

Heat the skillet on medium high flame and drizzle little bit of oil. Spread a spoonful batter in circular shape and drizzle oil on the edges. Sprinkle the veggies and drizzle oil on top .Add cheese on top of the veggies. Cover it with a lid and leave to cook for 1-2 minutes. I don’t flip the Uttapam. Once done Sprinkle gun powder/ chutney powder /Idli podi and serve. You can eat it without any chutney or sambar.

In case you skip cheese then serve it with chutney and sambar.

Note :You can use Idli Batter with toppings of your choice to make Uttapam.
