  • 1.5 cups rava
  • ¾ cup curd
  • 1 cup water approx.
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Few tsp of oil to cook
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 1 tsp oil

Vegetables used:

  • 1 big onion
  • 2 green chillies
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • ¼ cup curry leaves
  • ½ cup tomato



  • Chop onions, tomatoes, green chillies and coriander leaves.
  • Beat curd and keep it ready.

Recipe to make Rava uthappam:

  • To begin with, take rava in a mixing bowl with curd.
  • Add required salt and pour water gradually to prepare a thick uthappam batter. Mix well to remove the lumps.
  • Keep this batter aside for the rava to soak for an hour.
  • After an hour, you can see the rava becomes soft and thick.
  • Now mix all the finely chopped vegetables and add little water if required to adjust the consistency.
  • As optional ingredients, I add a teaspoon of rice flour and a teaspoon of oil. Rice flour gives mild crispness over the edges of the rava uthappam.

How to cook the rava uttapam:

  • Before cooking the uthappam, season the tawa with few drops of oil and a slice of big onion as shown to get proper uthappam. If you are using a non-stick pan then skip the above step and proceed with the next step.
  • Pour a ladle full of batter and do not spread.
  • Drizzle oil around the corners and cook the bottom for around three minutes in low medium flame.
  • As we add curd for soaking, the uthappam would be very delicate. Therefore handle it carefully.
  • Flip gently and drizzle oil if cooking in an iron tawa and cook for two minutes.
  • You can press gently to cook evenly.
  • Remove from the pan and serve hot with idli Podi or spicy tomato chutney or onion chutney.
  • This instant rava uttapam tastes great with tiffin sambar also.


Tips: 1) Firstly do not skip the soaking of rava in curd otherwise you cannot flip the uthappam. 2) Next thing is to get the correct consistency of the batter. Neither thick like Vada batter nor thin like rava dosa batter. 3) Customize the choice of veggies used. In addition to that, always use finely chopped vegetables. 4) Finally, the addition of rice flour and oil is to give crispy edges. Skip these if you like perfectly soft uthappam.
