BM #87 Day 24 - 

Here is a variation of the traditional Adai but without the red chilies and other traditional components. I have used Kodo Millet in place of rice and made this healthy version of uthappam.

I love to make such no ferment dosas and uthappams which are sometimes life savers. This was another way I used Kodo Millet without anyone the wiser.

Ingredients - 

Kodo Millet 1/4 cup
Toor Dal 2 Tbsp
Urad Dal 2 Tbsp
Chana Dal 2 Tbsp
Moong Dal 2 Tbsp
Ginger 1/2 inch
Green Chilies 2-3
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Carrots, grated 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves, finely chopped 3 Tbsp
Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp
Salt and Asafotida as needed

Method Of Preparation -

Soak kodo millet, moong dal, chana dal, urad dal, toor dal and red chilies for about 4-5 hours or over night.

Drain and grind the soaked millets and dals along with ginger and green chilies using as much water as needed to make a fine batter. 

In the ground batter, add cumin seeds, chopped vegetables, coriander leaves. salt and asafotida. Add adequate water to adjust the consistency of the batter.

Heat a griddle, pour a ladle full of batter and gently spread to make a 5-6 inch uthappam. Spray oil as needed and let it cook. Flip and cook the underside as well.

Remove and continue with the next uthappam.

Serve warm with any choice of chutney.


Preparation Time 15-20 minutes + Soaking time 4-5 hours
Makes 8-10

  12. Great way to sneak in millets into everyday recipes. No-ferment adai sounds absolutely delicious and convenient to make at a short notice.

  13. That is a great way of using kodo millet. I have been using millets in recipes for the past four years and it is quite easy substituting rice with millets. And no one will ever find it out. Will add this version to my list..

  14. Kodo millet and dals together in this uttapam must have tasted amazing and I am sure it would have been healthy too.
