Method for Rava Uttapam:
- Mix the measured rava (Semolina) and water in a big bowl.
- Keep the batter to rest for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile when the batter is at rest, you can slice or chop the onions, tomatoes and green chilies.
- Mix the chopped veggies and keep it aside.
- After 30 minutes stir the batter again. Add water if the batter is too tight and bring it to the desired consistency.
- Then add 3 tsp. lemon juice, salt, and ¼ tsp. baking soda or ½ tsp. fruit salt (Eno).
- Stir and mix well.
- Heat a tawa or griddle and spread some oil or ghee. Nonstick pan can also be used.
- Pour the batter on the tawa and spread it gently. Don’t spread it too much, it will make the uttapam very thin.
- When the batter is still raw from the top, add onion – tomatoes – green chilies – and shredded carrot mix. Gently press with the spatula, so that they stick to the batter.
- Drizzle some oil or ghee on the sides and top of the uttapam.
- When the base is cooked and lightly brown, flip the uttapam gently.
- Cook till the onions and tomatoes are light golden or golden.
- Flip and serve hot. Can be flipped a couple of times for the even cooking of the uttapam.
- For making plain rava uttapam, cook the uttapam without any topping.
- Serve rava uttapam with coconut chutney, coriander chutney, or south Indian idli podi.
- Rava uttapam also go well with tomato ketchup.
