Vrat ka uttapam recipe with stepwise photos. Swang ke chawal ka uttapam is a fasting recipe which can be made for religious fasting days like Ekadashi, Navratri, Mahashivratri or Janmashtami fasting.

vrat ka uttapam

I had come across this recipe in a cookbook and it seemed a breeze to prepare these uttapams. No grinding and fermentation. These uttapams are made from swang ke chawal or sama ke chawal ka atta or barnyard millet flour. So they taste very different and unlike the regular uttapam made from dosa batter or other variations like oats uttapam or instant rava uttapam.

These are like mini uttapams as the batter does not spread on the pan. So you make small uttapams. I have topped the uttapams with tomatoes and green chilies.

You can even add some mashed potatoes or mashed Vrat ke jeera aloo on top of the uttapams. you can also check this Sama ke chawal ki idli recipe.

These vrat ka uttapams can be served with plain yogurt or even phalahari chutney or this Vrat ki coconut chutney. if you are not making for fasting then you can serve these vrat ke uttapams with peanut chutney.

How to make vrat ke uttapam

1. Make a thick flowing batter with the sama ka atta (barnyard millet flour), cumin seeds, coriander leaves, rock salt and water.

2. Heat a griddle or tava. Spread some oil. Pour a small ladle of the batter in a round shaped pancake. Don’t spread as the batter is not going to spread. top the tomatoes and green chilies on the uttapam immediately as soon as you spread the batter. sprinkle some oil on the top and sides.

3. when the base is cooked, flip and cook the tomato-chili side.


4. you can also cook two or three uttapams at once on the tava or griddle.

  1. can I soak samaj for 2 hours and make the batter?? will it be nice???lemme know asap as I wanna make today.

  2. Hi, I have tried to make the recipes but the uththams get burnt whereas it was on low heat, could u solve out the reason.

    1. i wonder how the uttapams got burnt. which pan or tava you use. better to use a thick bottomed tava or a cast iron tava or griddle. even non stick pan works well. it should not burn. since some time is taking for cooking. since you mention low flame, then i guess the pan must be the culprit.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing so many plant-based(vegan) recipes…

    It’s great to read that you have become a vegan. Please post vegan sweet recipes, such as lauki halwa, carrot halwa…
