This rava uttapam is made at my mom’s home whenever they prefer to have light dinner. It is served with pickle & podi. These turn out very tasty with a unique aroma that comes from curd or buttermilk.
I made these sometime back when I was alone home for lunch. These can be made for breakfast, brunch, lunch or anytime you wish to make something quick. These can be served alone with a cup of masala chai or with chutney or pickle.
