Rawa Uttapam with Cabbage has a great texture & mind-blowing flavor. This recipe requires no ground & fermented batter, making it an easy breakfast option.
“What’s for breakfast today?” I think this is the most asked question in every home! Time and again we as homemakers strive to bring something interesting on the dining table which will be loved by all at home. It’s a constant battle everyday for all of us but it sure is a fun thing too. It gives us immense pleasure when the food we have served is well received. But I know that it is quite a challenge to come up with quick breakfast recipes specially on busy mornings. So on most days, milk and cereal comes to our rescue. But my quest is to find and prepare innovative and interesting breakfast recipes!
If you have kids, then you would know the fact that the food need not just taste good but also look great and inviting. We need to look for different ways to present healthy food to them. Some time back, I had made Eggs on Toast which not just looks appetizing, but tastes great too. Some other breakfast ideas that you can try are Butternut Squash Crepes/Pumpkin Uttapam, Chinese Scallion Pancake, Broccoli Oats Chilla/Pancakes, Mug Cake, Kumquat Walnut Oatmeal Bread, Rawa Paniyaram in Appe Pan, Vermicelli Oats Idli and the most recent one being Potato Dosa – An Instant Breakfast Fix. There are many nutritious veggies and fruits that must be incorporated in our day-to-day diets and breakfast being the most important meal of the day, it is essential to begin it on the right note.
I love South Indian breakfast! Idli and Dosa are like my all time favorite meals. The best part being the fact that the batter can last for few days. That ways you need not worry what to cook at least for the next few days. This crispy cabbage uttapam has a mind-blowing flavor to it. Also this recipe does not require any fermentation and can be prepared immediately. Here is what you need to do. In a mixing bowl, add semolina, yogurt, maida, baking powder and salt. Then add enough water to make a thick batter and whisk it. Cover it and let it stand for 10 minutes. Next add cilantro, green chillies and shredded cabbage.
Give the batter a good mix. Now add oats powder to it. Mix. Heat a skillet, pour a dollop of batter and spread it like pancakes. Sprinkle chilly powder and cheese on top. Pour little oil on all sides and cook both sides evenly.
You can enjoy these uttapam any time of the day so don’t just restrict them for breakfast, however it is surely a great idea to start your day with this meal! The addition of cabbage to this dish only helps to elevate the taste.
