Uttapam is a popular South Indian breakfast dish made from fermented rice and lentil batter. It is similar to a thick pancake or dosa but with a slightly thicker and fluffier texture. The batter is spread on a hot griddle and topped with a variety of ingredients like onions, tomatoes, green chilies, and cilantro. The uttapam is cooked until the bottom is crispy and golden brown. It is typically served with coconut chutney and sambar, a flavorful lentil soup. Uttapam is loved for its savory taste and is a filling and nutritious breakfast option.
