Sometimes we crave for a snack but realise that alas, we have not prepared for it earlier! When you feel such a strong desire to have a hot and fluffy uttapam but do not have the batter on hand, go for this instant version, made with a batter of bread and semolina!

It tastes and feels just as good as authentic uthappam with the added advantage of being really easy and quick, without any soaking or fermentation time.

We have added some juicy and crunchy veggies to boost the appeal of the Bread Uthappam, which is made even more exciting by the mildly spicy notes of green chillies and ginger.

This is a good way to make use of leftover bread, and can also be made instantly when you have sudden guests.

Serve it immediately with a chatpata accompaniment like Green Chutney or Sambhar .

  1. Take a big mixer jar and put torn bread pieces into it. Here I have used white bread slices, you can opt for brown bread slices. 
  2. Then add the semolina. Use the fine variety semolina if possible.
  3. Add plain flour. Rava and maida help in binding together all the ingredients.
  4. Add the curds. They impart a pleasant flavor to the uttapam.
  5. Add approx. ¾ cup of water in a mixer and blend till smooth.
  6. Transfer the mixture into a deep bowl. The best part about this batter is that it does not require any soaking or fermenting. 
  7. Add finely chopped onions to it.
  8. Add finely chopped tomatoes.
  9. Add finely chopped capsicum. They provide a nice crunch to the uttapam. 
  10. Add finely chopped coriander. Alternatively, you can even mix together all these juicy vegetables and prepare a topping. Spread the topping uniformly over the uttapam after pouring it over the tava. 
  11. Add finely chopped ginger.
  12. Add finely chopped green chillies. They make the uttapam more exciting by adding some spicy notes.
  13. Add salt to taste and mix well.
  14. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), sprinkle a little water on it (it should sizzle immediately) and wipe off using a piece of cloth.
  15. Grease it using ¼ tsp of oil. You can even use butter or ghee.
  16. Pour a ladleful of the batter on the tava (griddle), spread in a circular motion to make a 125 mm. (5") diameter thick circle. Remember not to spread it more or else the uttapam will break. 
  17. Pour ½ tsp of oil on the top and edges and cook on a medium flame till it turns light brown in colour.
  18. Check if its cooked and turn around. Cook till golden brown on both sides.
  19. Repeat steps 14 to 18 to make 8 more uttapas . If you are looking for a healthy variant, then try Instant Oats and Whole Wheat Uttapam recipe
  20. Serve South Indian bread uttapam immediately with green chutney for quick breakfast. They even taste nice with coconut chutney and sambhar.
