Innovative Baked Uttapams : Rice Crepes In Ice Cream Sticks


No no this is not just another recipe of Uttapam !! I tried to make it more healthy and fun simultaneously. As I treat breakfast the most important meal of the day so nothing can beat these uttapams which are baked in Oven to sans oil. 

This summer when I was doing a course, had to leave my little A as school were closed to a day care/ hobby Center. The Day care planned to celebrate "Healthy Tiffin Day" so there I was raking up my brain to come up with an eye catching tiffin item. I like if the batter is one day or two days old. Needless to say I got the 'Innovative Mom's' Tag :-)

Ingredients:
2 cups of Dosa batter
{Rice 3 cups+1 cup Urad Dal + 1 tbspChana Dal and 1 tsp Methi seeds, soaked overnight and next day ground to paste, the texture should be coarse. And finally leave it for frementation for 8 hours}
1 Carrot , grated
1 Onion, chopped finely
3-4 French beans
few Corander leaves
Butter or Oil if required
Salt to taste
*For Varitation you can use any kind of chopped vegetables

Method:

Chop and grate the veteables and keep aside. Sprinkle some salt and spread a spoonful batter on pre-heated tawa for round shape. Do not spread it much as we want small uttapams only. So smaller the better. Now sprinkle some carrot-beans and a pinch of salt. Slightly press it with the back of flat laddle to stick the vegetables. Absolutely no need to drizzle oil around the corner but if you are finding it difficult then might add 2-3 drops per uttapam.

 Now leave it for 2 minutes on low flame to set, once you see light golden color at the bottom remove it from the heat and place it on baking tray. For different shapes use the cookie cutters and pour the batter inside those, let it set down and sprinkle onion+coriander leaves.

When you are done with the remaining batter, place the baking tray inside the Oven (170 C) and bake for 5-6 minutes. Remove and insert he ice-cream sticks inside those thick uttapams. Kids will be delighted to see these cute uttapams on stick. 


Notes:

  • As soon as you pour batter on hot tawa, sprinkle vegetables, little salt on it, this step will make the veggies to stick to the batter. 
  • Instead of oil you can also use butter if you want.
  • Instead of coriander leaves you can replace it with curry leaves.
  • I never drizzle oil before putting the batter on hot tawa, just sprinkle some water and wipe it off with a clean cloth. But you can put 2-3 drops of oil on tawa and rub it with onion and then pour the batter. This way your uttapam will not stick to the pan.
