Instant Poha Uttapam

Uttapam is a type of dosa from South India. Unlike a typical dosa which are crisp and thin, uttapam is thick with toppings such as tomatoes, onion, green chilies, capsicum, coriander and carrots. These Uttapams are often served with sambar or chutney. Uttapam is made with lentils and rice soaked overnight then made paste and fermented for 6-8 hours to make the uttapam.
