Rava/Semolina – 2 cups
Rice Flour – 1/4 cup
Onions (finely chopped) – 2 large
Tomatoes (finely chopped) – 2 small
Capsicum (finely chopped) – 1 large
Italian Seasoning – 1 tsp
Piri Piri Powder – 1 tbsp
Fresh Coriander Leaves (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
Salt – 2 tsp
Buttermilk/Curd (little sour if possible) – 1/2 cup
Water – 1- 2 cups
1) In a bowl mix together rava, rice flour, salt and italian seasoning. In this mixture add the buttermilk/curd and water and mix it all well to form batter. The batter should not be too watery. If you have time you can keep the batter to rest for half an hour to one hour if not you can use it immediately also.
2) In another bowl mix together the onions, tomatoes, capsicum and fresh coriander leaves. In this add the piri piri powder and mix well.
3) Heat cast iron tava (dosa tawa) or non-stick tawa over medium flame. Add few drops of oil on hot tawa and spread it.
4) When tawa is ready, pour one laddle batter and spread it in round shape by gently rotating the ladle in clockwise direction making sure that batter spread is slightly thicker than a batter spread for Dosa.
5) Add the topping as made in step 2 on top and gently press it in the batter. Drizzle oil on the outer sides and let it cook from one. After 5 minutes flip on the other side and cook on the side with toppings gently press while cooking this side so that the toppings are embedded in the uttapam properly and become crisp.
6) Serve hot with chutney or tomato ketchup.
