Rava Uttapam/ Instant Sooji Uttapam

Rava uttapam is essentially a simple pancake formed with a mixture comprised of rava and yogurt and topped with some vegetables. When you are hungry and short on time, it may be made rather quickly. You may eat this for breakfast or lunch.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 to 25 minutes
Servings: 4

  • 1 cup rava/ sooji/ semolina
  • 1/2 cup yogurt 
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium small tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green capsicum, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red capsicum, chopped
  • 1/4 cup carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup cabbage, grated
  • 3 to 4 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves, chopped
  • Oil
  • Salt to tate
  1. Soak rava in one cup of water and set aside for 10 minutes. In the meantime, chop the veggies.
  2. Add yogurt and salt to the rava mixture. Mix the batter to a not too thin or too thick consistency. If needed, add a couple of tablespoons of water to bring it to the right consistency.
  3. Grease and heat the pan. Pour a laddle of the batter and spread it gently. Sprinkle the veggies and press with a spatula.
  4. Add oil around the edges and cover with a lid. Cook on medium heat. 
  5. Cook until the rava uttapam is lightly crisp (browning bottom) and the veggies are cooked. Follow the same directions for rest of the batter.
  6. Serve hot with coconut chutney. (Check the recipe on my blog for Coconut Chutney.)
