  1. Soak the rice and urad dal separately in water for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain the water from the rice and urad dal and grind them separately into a fine paste, using a blender or a stone grinder.
  3. Mix the two pastes together in a large mixing bowl, and add enough water to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  4. Add salt to taste and stir the batter well.
  5. Cover the bowl with a lid and leave it in a warm place to ferment for 8-10 hours or overnight.
  6. The batter should have risen and will have a sour smell, indicating that it is fermented and ready to use. You can add some water if it is thick and adjust salt if required.

Note: you can add some methi seeds to the batter for better taste and better digestion.

To make uttapam:

  1. Heat a griddle or pan over medium heat.
  2. Take a ladleful of the batter and pour it onto the griddle.
  3. Spread it outwards gently to make a thick pancake and pour a spoonful of oil or ghee around the edges of the uttapam.
  4. Sprinkle the toppings of your choice (onion, tomato, capsicum, corn, etc) on one side of the uttapam and press them lightly with the back of a spoon.
  5. Once the edges start to turn golden brown, flip the uttapam over and cook the other side until golden brown as well.
  6. Repeat with the remaining batter, and serve the uttapam warm with chutney or sambar.
