Preparation of breakfast is an eternal struggle for me and I guess for many of you too, right? So I keep exploring all possible options. Breakfast being a very important meal of the day, I tend to look for high protein options and end up making dosa/idli/upma in different combinations. One such combination happened to be Semiya Uthappam. 

I had read about Semiya Uthappam long time back in a magazine but never attempted as it was nestled in my forgotten folders. Few days back when I read this post, I suddenly remembered that I had jotted this recipe and went back and looked for it and found that both the recipes were more or less the same. Thats when I decided that I would make this for breakfast and here I am with the details.

Semiya Uthappam

Ingredients - 

Vermicelli / Semiya Roasted 1 cup (I used the store bought roasted semiya)
Rice Flour 1/2 cup
Yogurt/Curds beaten 2 cups
Onions finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomatoes finely chopped 3 Tbsp
Carrots grated 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2-3 Tbsp
Ginger grated 1 tsp
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Hing 1/4 tsp
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation - 

In a bowl, mix semiya, rice flour and beaten yogurt and set aside for about 20-30 min.

Meanwhile assemble the chopped vegetables, spices and herbs. Mix these with the semiya-rice flour mixture. The batter should be of Uthappam batter consistency.

On a hot tawa/griddle spread ladle full of batter into as thin a circle as possible and spray a little oil if needed (I don't use oil for dosa/uthappam as I use a non-stick tawa).

Semiya Uthappam

Continue with the rest of the batter and make as many uthappams as possible.

Sending these uthappams to Suma's 'Cooking With Seeds - Wheat' .

Preparation Time 25-30 min
Makes 5-6 

On another note, I am proud to display the CD art by my kids (ages 9 and 3). While I was busy in the kitchen preparing dinner on a weekend, my kids gave me a surprise!!
