"आठ्व्नीतली एक संध्याकाल"  
झीरपीत पाउस, थंडगार वारा, गरमा गरम तव्यावार्चे  गरमा गरम Uttappae आणि मित्र परिवार बरोबर रमत गमत बघितलेला एक दमदार मूवी !
 Any Such Utta(m)ppam incidents to share ?

3  Cups of boiled rice
1-1/2 Cup of black gram
1 tbsp Fenugreek seeds
3-4  Medium sized red onions finely chopped
4-5 Hot green chillies finely chopped
a few curry leaves (optional)
salt to taste

1. Soak rice with fenugreek seeds and gram separately in two vessels for about 4-5 hours.
2. Grind rice and gram separately to a smooth paste.
3. Add salt, mix both the pastes thoroughly in a large vessel and keep overnight (7-8 hours) for the batter to ferment.
4. When fermented-add onions, green chillies and curry leaves. (The batter should be thick and not very thick-moderate thick will do, add water if the batter is too thick)
5. Mix well.
6.Now, heat tawa(griddle) on a medium flame.
7. Spread little oil on the tawa and now on this pour a scoop full of the Uttappam batter.
8. Spread evenly into a moderately thick layer.
9. When one side is done, remove carefully from the tawa and turn over on the other side.
10. When both sides are crisp and golden brown, remove from the tawa and serve hot with Grren Chutney(recipe coming soon)
