Veg uttapam | uttapam is a South Indian breakfast recipe, generally made with left over idli|dosa batter. I have posted small uttapam recipe in jeyashri’s kitchen inspired by Murugan Idli kadai. I actually wanted to try 5 taste uttapam but since i have already posted mini masala uttapam recipe, i thought i will make the normal veg uthapam. The uttapam was quite filling and loaded with veggies. You can serve this without any chutney or sambar too.
