Mysore Masala Vegetable Uttapam / Indian Pizza

Yes I think kids know this dish more as Indian Pizza if they don't know how to pronounce it. Uttapam is thicker than dosa and its open face, not like dosa you can stuff masala in it and fold it. In Uttapam you can see what's inside. I wanted to make this for so long but one way other it goes postponed, one fine day I made it. I always have batter in fridge because my kids love dosa. This batter is thicker than dosa too. And because I love spicy food, I added Mysore masala chutney in it too. You can make it with your favorite toppings also, spread cheese for kids and make a colorful uttapam too.

Ingredients :

2 cups Uttapam Batter (2 cups rice, 1 cup Urad dal with fenugreek seeds (methi) in it for at least 6 hours, grind with thick consistency and let it fermented for over night, add salt when using it)

1 cup chopped red , green capsicum , tomato, onion, slice of ginger, green chilies, few strings of fresh coriander leaves and mint leaves

For Mysore Red chutney :

1 /4 cup  chana dal
10 dry red peppers
3-4 cloves of garlic
slice of ginger
salt to taste, 
1 tbsp. oil, lemon juice
Roast chana dal for 5 minutes. Put it in blender with rest of the ingredients and mix it. Don't add too much water, we don't want watery chutney but thick one.

Heat a non stick dosa pan. Add big spoonful of batter  and make a thick big circle.
Spread generously chopped vegetables.
Drizzle a tsp. of oil if you desired.
cook on medium flame for two minutes.
Turn it over and let it cook on other side too.
Again Turn it over and spread as per your spice level, red chutney on it.
Let it cook for minute and take it out on serving dish.
If you wish cut it in four triangle pieces and serve it with leftover red chutney and coconut chutney.



  1. Very healthy!! Loved this colourful Uttapam...

  2. Nice Indian menu. Reasonably priced. Good for a quick lunch. Dinner menu could be different as opposed to the lunch menu. Price is OK considering it’s on Flinders Street. Service is quick. I like this Indian food in Australia .

  3. My favorite South Indian dish...deliciously done.

  4. Delicious n colorful Uttapam.. Beautifully done!

  5. Yummy and very innovative utthapam Linsy.

  6. Its a delicious Asian style pizza. Like you said, the dosa flour is there and we can assemble with any kind of topping. Isn't it an easy preparation for a satisfying home cooked meal?
