Rava Uttapam (Savory Pancakes)
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total Time
These savory pancakes come together quickly and are great for breakfast, but also make a great appetizer or side for dinner.
Recipe Type: Appetizer, Breakfast, Side
Yield: 4 servings
  • ½ cup semolina flour
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped tomato
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish
  1. Mix together the semolina flour and yogurt to form a batter. It should have the consistency of pancake batter; add a couple of tablespoons of water if necessary to make the batter easily spreadable. Mix in the salt and the oil. Allow to rest for 20 minutes on the counter.
  2. Heat a little bit of oil in a non-stick skillet. Pour a ladle of batter and spread a bit. Add the chopped onions, tomatoes and coriander.
  3. Let it cook for a couple of minutes on one side and then flip. Cook for another couple of minutes, till the batter is set (cook as you would a pancake, although it takes a few minutes longer since it is thicker and denser).
  4. Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining batter. Sprinkle with cilantro garnish and serve.
