Thavala Oothapam/ Thavala uthapam

Author: kittymatti / Labels:

Though the name is 'thavala' oothapam, this has nothing to do with a frog :) I guess it is the vessel!

Again, a fantastic recipe from my Kamala paati


1 cup raw rice
1/2 cup channa dal
1/4 cup toor dal
1/4 cup urad dal
salt, hing 3 dashes
sour curds - to soak
1 tsp oil
oil for roasting
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
2 red dried chillies
1 sprig curry leaves

Soak washed rice and dals together for 1 1/2 hrs in sour curds. Grind to a coarse batter with salt and hing in a mixie. In a pan, add a little bit of oil, splutter mustard seeds, urad dal , curry leaves and red chillies for garnish. Toss the seasoning onto the batter. Mix well.
Take a kadai (preferably round bottom) add 4 tbsp of oil, pour 1 ladleful of batter and cook closed in medium flame. Once it cooks evenly and is brown on one side, flip it over and cook till brown on the other side. Serve with molaga podi/ chutney podi and oil or pulimolagai/ molaga thokku.
