  1. Wow really clever.
    Just wanted to know with the adding od maida what was the texture of the uttapom

    1. The texture is just like the one made from dal and rice because we are adding sour yogurt so there is no need to ferment it.A little change I have made here by adding a pinch of turmeric to give a different look.For variation I also sometimes add a little sambar powder to this dough.

  2. Thankyou for the answer. Will try these as there is no fermentaion.
