Uttapam – Rice & Lentil Pancake

Happy Thursday dear friends! Hope you are having a great week. This week we decided to treat you to some yummy Indian breakfast item ‘Uttapam’. We made this dish regularly when my parents were over.  It is a healthy and filling breakfast item. Uttapam is essentially made with rice and urad dal and is a very versatile pancake as you can add the toppings of your choice.
