Uttapams, Uthappas, Oothappam – little variation in the spelling and the pronunciation but the outcome is just a delicious snack (or meal for some). The Uttappams may look like Pancakes but the similarities end right there. The “Indian Pancake” is usually savory and has toppings that are cooked along with the Uttappam. Traditionally, Uttappams are served with Sambar and one of the endless chutney varieties – Coconut Chutney, Dry Chutney Powder, Onion Chutney or Tomato Chutney. Enjoy the traditional style or any one of the fusion ones.
