Save recipe


  1. 1 cup coarse semolina
  2. 1/2 cup yogurt
  3. 1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 large tomato, finely chopped
  5. 2 green chillies, finely chopped
  6. 2 tablespoons finely chopped coriander leaves
  7. 2 tablespoons oil
  8. Salt to taste


  1. Combine semolina with yogurt , salt and about half cup water in a large bowl. Mix well to make a batter.
  2. Heat a flat non-stick pan and drizzle about half teaspoon oil. Pour about 3 tablespoons of batter and spread it evenly to make a round uttapam.
  3. Gently place a heart-shaped cookie cutter in the centre of the uttapam. Scatter chopped onions, green chillies and coriander leaves on the uttapam leaving the part of uttapam inside the cookie cutter. Fill the part of uttapam inside the cookie cutter with chopped tomatoes. Carefully remove the cookie cutter without breaking the uttapam. Drizzle about half teaspoon oil on top of the uttapam.
  4. When the base of the uttapam turns crisp and easily comes off the pan, flip it carefully with the help of a spatula. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  5. Repeat the same process to make more uttapams with the remaining batter.
  6. Serve hot with mint chutney and cafe mocha.
