The popular south indian preparation is made healthier with the addition of iron-rich jowar. Serve these uttapams with coconut chutney to relish it the most.


Jowar 1 Cup (16 tbs) (white millet , soaked overnight and drained)
Urad dal 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (split black lentils , soaked overnight and drained)
Soya milk 1 Cup (16 tbs) (unflavoured)
Salt To Taste

Oil 2 1/2 Teaspoon (For greasing)



1. Combine the jowar, urad dal and soya milk and blend in a mixer to a smooth paste.

2. Transfer the paste into a bowl, add ¼ cup of water and mix well to make a batter of pouring consistency.

3. Add the salt and ginger-green chilli paste and mix well.

4. Heat a mini uttapa pan and grease it using ½ tsp of oil.

5. Pour 2 small spoonfuls of the batter in each of the 7 uttapa moulds to make a 75 mm. (3") diameter round.

6. Cook the uttapams, using 1 tsp of oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.

7. Repeat with the remaining batter to make 13 more uttapams in 2 more batches.
