Purple Cabbage Uthappam

Pin It Now!
A delicious twist to the uthappam who I consider as a cousin to the all time favorite south indian breakfast dosa.While dosas are thinner savory crepes made out of ground rice and urad dal,uthappams are thicker versions,more like pancakes.Here I have added one of the gorgeously colored and deliciously rich in vitamins vegetable-purple cabbage.For kids it can be made more enticing by adding shredded cheese on top if preferred.

1 cup finely chopped purple cabbage
2 cups dosa batter
Seasonings - Optional
1/4 cup chopped onions
2-3 green chillies chopped
2 tsp chana dal

Heat oil in a pan add chana dal when roasted add chopped onions,salt,green chillies and saute till cooked.Set aside to cool.In a bowl add the batter and the chopped cabbage and mix to blend well.Add the cooled seasonings(optional) to the mixed batter.In a flat pan add few scoops of the batter and make thick crepes.Add oil as needed and flip cook on both sides.Enjoy with roasted dal powder,chutnies or sambar.

Dosa batter:

  • Soak 3-4 cups Idli Rice to 1 cup whole Urad Dal for 8 hrs.Grind with some salt and store till well fermented.
  • Soak 1 cup whole Urad Dal for 5 hrs.Grind to a smooth fluffy consistency.Add 4 cups Rice Flour to the grounded dal,add salt and mix to blend well.Store to ferment well.
