Uttapam is a dosa-like dish that is made by cooking ingredients in a batter. The batter is made of a 1:3 ratio of urad dal and rice (1:1 ratio of boiled to non-boiled rice) that has been fermented. Instead of making it like a crispy crepe, uttapam is thick and not filled, with ingredients cooked right into the batter. Uttapam is traditionally made with tomatoes or an onion-chilli mix; other common ingredient choices are coconut or mixed vegetables. Uttapam is sometimes called an Indian pizza or pancake.
