7 Taste Uthappam / 5 Taste Uthappam Recipe

7 taste uthappam
7 Taste Uthappam / 5 Taste Uthappam Recipe – Many of you would have tasted this dosa variety in restaurants like Saravana bhavan and many restaurants in Tamil nadu. Basically uthappam is a soft, spongy dosa that looks round and small in size. You can make it with freshly ground fermented idli, dosa batter or with leftover idli batter. Both tastes great. Onion uthappam is the most common oothappam variety. But this 5 taste / 7 taste uthappam with 7 different toppings makes this simple dish much more interesting. Though I haven’t tasted this recipe in Chennai Saravana bhavan, I have tasted it in Salem Saravana bhavan – asai dosai and Sree Saravana bhavan restaurant in Krishnagiri. But both the restaurants served 5 taste uthappam with masala toppings like mushroom masala, paneer masala, Gobi masala, grated carrot and small onion. It was so filling that I wasn’t able to eat 3 uthappam.  But the recipe I have shared here is very simple with light toppings. It won’t make you feel full at the same time its so appealing to eyes. Kids would love it for sure. Even we adults would be craving to eat it by seeing their colors. I have made this uthappam with the mini uthappam pan which I bought recently. I purchased it mainly for this recipe and to make pancakes for Raksha. If you are interested to buy this mini uthappam / pancake pan, please check THIS LINK in Amazon. There are many brands available in it.  If you don’t want this pan, you can make in dosa tawa itself.  You can make 3 to 4 per batch based on the size of your dosa tawa. I have used onion, carrot, capsicum, coriander leaves, tomato + crushed pepper, Idli podi / Gun powder, dry fruits and nuts toppings. You can skip any two and make 5 taste uthappam. For variations, you can use paneer bhurji, grated cheese, chocolate chips even finely cut apple for different and interesting toppings. Friends, do try this easy and colorful 7 taste uthappam recipe and share your feedback with me !

      Kara Dosai Recipe –Toor Dal Dosa Recipe

      Kara dosai recipe
      I learnt this kara dosai recipe / Toor dal dosa from my friend Shalini. She shared her mom’s recipe with me. This karam dosa looks similar to adai / mixed dal dosa but its different in ingredients and taste. Also the batter needs fermentation. So this dosa cannot be prepared instantly like adai. Idli rice, dosa rice / raw rice and toor dal are the base ingredients for this dosa recipe. It is prepared without urad dal. You can make both super crispy dosa and thick dosa with this batter. But this dosa batter becomes sour quickly. So its better to use it within 2 days by refrigerating the batter. Ok, lets see how to make this yummy, colorful kara dosai  also known as toor dal dosa with step by step pictures.

      Ration Arisi Idli Dosa Recipe - How To Make Soft Idli With Ration Rice

      how to make idli using ration rice

      I must thank my MIL for teaching me how to make soft idli batter with ration rice (Ration arisi). For the past 2 years my in-laws are getting ration rice (both idli rice/ puzhungal arisi and raw rice / pacharisi) regularly in Salem, Tamil nadu. Most of the people avoid using ration rice/ idli rice because it looks pale yellow in color with lots of dirt, sometimes with worms too. Cleaning itself is a big deal. But my MIL does everything patiently and gives me few kgs whenever we visit Salem. After trying so many combinations, my MIL is fixed with this ratio of rice and dal (6:1) to make soft idli and crispy dosa batter. So I too follow the same and get good results every time. The biggest problem with ration rice idli is its pale color, sticky in texture with musty smell (We call it as Oora naatham in Tamil). To avoid this & to get white colored idli without any smell, we must wash the rice at least 5 to 6 times before soaking and thrice after soaking. Similarly the quality of ration rice keeps changing. Based on that we make idli dosa in two ways by changing the ratio of rice and dal. I have given both of them below. You can follow the ratio of 6:1 (rice : urad dal) if you use grinder. If you want to use our Indian mixie for grinding the batter, use 4:1 ratio. I hope this post will help the people who are using ration rice for the first time. By following this recipe, you can make soft idli, crispy dosa, paniyaram, uthappam and appam with the same batter. Ok, lets move on to the recipe below.

      Check out my 15+ idli varieties if you are interested !

      RATION RICE IDLI - STEP BY STEP PICTURES
      • Wash the ratio idli rice 5 to 6 times thoroughly with your hands till the water becomes clear without any debris or dust. Remove the husk, black particles while washing the rice. Discard it.
      • Soak the rice in enough water for 4 to 5 hours.  Color of the rice becomes white after soaking. To avoid the musty smell from the rice, again wash the soaked rice twice or thrice before grinding. how to make idli with ration rice  how to make idli with ration rice
      • Wash and soak urad dal + fenugreek seeds for 2 hours. how to make idli with ration rice
      • After soaking, rice looks white in color. Now drain the soaked water to remove the musty smell in rice. Wash it twice or thrice based on the smell. Add fresh, clean water and grind to a smooth paste. It takes 25 to 30 minutes approx for grinding. ( If you have the practice of grinding dal first, you can grind the urad dal and then rice).

      • Remove the rice batter in a big vessel. Do not add salt while grinding rice If you live in cold countries. ( Salt delays fermentation). Grind the soaked urad dal to a fluffy, spongy batter by sprinkling water gradually. It takes 20 minutes approx.

      • Mix the urad dal batter with rice batter with your hands. (Do not add salt If you live in cold countries or during winter season because salt delays fermentation process. If you are in hot place or during summer season, you can add salt in the batter while mixing or grinding.)
      • how to make idli with ration rice
      • Close the vessel with a lid. Let the idli batter ferment over night or minimum 12 hours. The next morning, batter would have become sour and raised well or sometimes doubled based on the weather.
