Paneer Uttapam Recipe is a delicious ,nutritious and wholesome breakfast recipe.Soft and savory uttapam/pancakes topped up with grated paneer, carrots, onion ,tomatoes and freshly chopped chillies and coriander.
I usually make uttapam from leftover idli/dosa batter.The main difference between uttapam and dosa is that uttapams are slightly thicker than dosas and topped up with different savory toppings. In this recipe we have topped it with some India cheese which is nothing but fresh paneer and some vegetables to add to the crunch.
If you are looking for more Dosa recipes here are some:
The toppings are usually added to the uttapam as it cooks on the griddle/tawa, so they cook along with the batter. Uttapam is also a common street food and healthy too since it is rich in carbohydrates, and contains no sugar or saturated fats. Use less oil while preparing and load up on the vegetables to keep them healthier.
Furthermore, some important tips for a perfect uttapam recipe. Prepare the batter with 3:1 ratio of rice and urad dal. I have used normal sona masuri rice, however you can use any idli rice or dosa rice. i do not recommend to use basmati rice or brown rice for this recipe.lastly, if you are using a idli batter than make sure the batter is bit thin but comparatively thicker to dosa batter.
