Chandrakala Uthappam/ Uthappam with a twist

I don't think any one discovered this uthappam, doing my twist to it. Hence the name Chandrakala Uthappam. It has got secret ingredient that is my amma's special curry. 

We need:

Mix Idli batter in a bowl (Just take how much your family needs for doing Uthappam.), to that add 1/2 the amount of Cabbage Bangaladumpa Kura, for extra hot cut finely chopped green chillies few of them - mix well and do Uthappam. (remember no need to add extra salt as curry already has salt in it)

Heating a small nonstick deep flat pan as shown in the picture, on low heat, add 1 tbsp oil, once heated add 2-3 ladle ful of batter and do flat round shape, cover, cook for few mins, or until light brown underneath and turn again, cover and cook for few mins, remove lid cook for 1 min and serve.

Goes well with Ginger pickle or elseTomato Pickle.


When ever you do Idli batter, cook this curry too, and keep in fridge. You will have the next day yummy Uthappam out of it. Serve as a Breakfast, Brunch or for people who eat tiffin in the evening.

The smell and tastes of this Uthappam takes you to Indian Tiffin Centres in India, I promise!!! eagerly waiting for your feed back :-)


Cabbage Bangaladumpa Kura = Cabbage Potato Curry
Uthappam = Indian Pan cake sort of :-)
Chandrakala? my mom's name
