Cut all vegetables into small pieces. We use white part of
Japanese leek and green part can also be used if it is soft.
Mix all the vegetable and batter together, add salt. Keep aside
small amount of chopped leek, we will use it as topping later.
Heat the tawa (frypan), when it becomes very hot, pour 2 ladles of
batter, sprinkle chopped leek on the top, once there are small
bubbles on the top, put half teaspoon of oil on the edge of uttapam,
wait for a few seconds till oil absorbs into uttapam. Then flip it
over. 3 or 4minutes later, try to flip it over again. Check well
whether it is cooked or not.
Now uttapam is Ready!
Eat with your favorite chutney(coriander, mint, tomato, coconut,
garlic etc), or simply with tomato ketchup. If you like Japanese
taste, try with soya sauce, if you are not vegetarian, you can
sprinkle dried fish flake (Katsuobushi) on the top.
