  1. The rava after mixing with curd and water needs to rest so it rises and soaks the water and curd well.
  2. Adding fresh veggies to the batter itself makes the uttapam taste even yummier.
  3. Make uttapams according to your choice of size. You can make small uttapams for kids Tiffin boxes as well.
  4. Adding fresh veggies of your choice on top adds a whole new crunch and taste to the uttapam.
