Mini Vegatable Uthappam

 Idli is one dish which my daughter refuses to eat. A south Indian, particular a madrasi and does not eat idli is highly unacceptable…well, that is what my family thinks. I have tried to give her idli with different chutney’s and sambhar and all my attempts failed. Finally I decided to make uthappam with some vegetables with the same batter and the resistance came down considerably. Here is how she liked to eat uthappam when she was a kid
INGREDIENTS
Par boiled rice/Idli rice
4 cups
Urad dal(white and whole)
1 cup
Fenugreek seeds
2 Tsp
Salt
To taste

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE THE VEGETABLE UTHAPPAM
Uthappam batter
As required
Carrot
2(grated)
Tomato
1(cut finely)
Onion
1(cut finely)
Coriander
2tbsp
Oil
As required
PREPARATION
Soak rice with fenugreek seeds in a big bowl with lots of water for 3 hours
Soak the dal in enough water for 3 hrs
Grind the dal first in a wet grinder till smooth and fluffy
Take it out
Now grind the rice and fenugreek seeds with enough water till smooth
Combine the dal paste to this
Add the necessary salt, mix well and let it ferment overnight
Next morning mix the batter well. Heat the mini uthappam pan, and pour a ladle full of batter into each depression.
Now sprinkle 1tbsp each of vegetables that you have grated
Drizzle oil around and close with a lid and cook on low flame
When the colour of the base starts to brown, check if there is no more raw batter and take it out

Serve warm with a chutney of your choice
