Indian Bloggers Uttapam or Uthappa
is a dosa-like breakfast recipe from South Indian cuisine. To make Poha Uttapam I prepared batter with poha, yogurt, rice and urad dal. Uttapam is a thick pancake, with toppings cooked right into the batter. Uttapam is traditionally made with toppings such as tomatoes, onion, chilies, capsicum and cabbage mix; other common choices are coconut or mixed vegetables. It is often eaten with sambar or chutney. It is loaded with high carbohydrates, which are the richest source of energy and our body needs energy or carbohydrates early in the morning. So flattened rice act as a fuel for our body.
