Ingredients of Beetroot Uttapam

  • 2 Cups idli/ dosa batter
  • 2 small Beetroots
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small Tomato , finely chopped
  • 1/2 Capsicum, finely chopped
  • 3 Green Chillies, finely chopped
  • Oil for cooking
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves for garnish

How to Make Beetroot Uttapam:-

1.Grate the beetroots to get thin strands.
2.Add the idli/ dosa batter to a bowl, along with the grated beetroot. Add water to thin the batter if required. But remember that uttapams require a thicker batter than regular dosas.
3.Mix well to form a pinkish batter.
4.Add around ½ tsp of oil to a heated non-stick tawa.
5.Ladle a big spoon of the batter onto it, As with regular uttapams, do not spread the batter thinly.
6.Add small quantities of the chopped veggies (onions, tomatoes, capsicum, green chillies) on top and lightly press them into the batter.
7.Sprinkle a little bit of salt. Add more oil along the edges of the thick uttapam. Cover for a few minutes.
8.Lift the uttapam to check if it is slightly brown. Then flip it and cook on the other side too. Take care not to burn the veggies.
9.Transfer onto a plate, garnish with coriander and serve with coconut chutney.
