You can make them plain or top with onions, tomatoes or mixed grated veggies.

In the step by step photo guide, I have shown both the plain as well as mix vegetable version. The recipe can be doubled or tripled too.

Ever since I first made these, I have made them quite a number of times later. These tasty instant rava uttapam have a lot of pluses.

  • First very good to taste. The number one factor that should be there in any recipe.
  • Quick to make.
  • On cooling down, they still remain soft. So good for tiffin box snack.
  • No grinding.
  • No fermentation.
  • Just a soaking period of 20 to 30 minutes for the batter.

For making this tasty breakfast dish, you will need fine sooji or rava. Most such recipes which do not require fermentation, use yogurt or buttermilk.

However, I have used lemon juice and I feel the lemon juice ones taste better than the ones made with yogurt. Baking soda is essential in the recipe. If you do not have baking soda, then you could use fruit salt (eno) too.

Do try these instant mix veg suji uttapam and you as well as your family will love them. You can serve them with coconut chutney or mint coriander chutney.

How to make Instant Mix Vegetable Rava Uttapam

1. Take ½ cup fine variety of rava (semolina) in a bowl. Do note that the rava to be added is not roasted rava.

2. Add ½ cup water.

3. Mix well and keep the batter to rest for 20 to 30 minutes. You can even keep the batter for an hour.

4. Meanwhile when the batter is resting, you can slice or chop the onions or shallots, tomatoes and green chilies. Here I have used shallots. You can even use grated carrots, grated beetroot and sliced or chopped capsicum (bell pepper). For herbs you can add chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), mint and finely chopped ginger.

5. Mix the chopped veggies and keep aside.

6. After 20 to 30 minutes, stir the batter again. By now the rava will absorb water and the batter will thicken. If the batter looks thin, then just add a few tablespoons of rava. If very thick, then add a few tablespoons of water.

7. Then add 3 tsp lemon juice.
