Chilly Cheese Uttapam ... simply AWESOME !

Whenever I go to the BIG BAZAR at Kharagpur we somehow end up having  "Chilly Cheese Uttapam" . It's simply GREAT! If you happen to be in the neighbourhood do not miss this  CCU @ Big Bazar, Food Court.

Last night I decided to make it at home, in my kitchen. Though I did not have the time or the energy to make sambar, the coconut chutney more than made up for it when I served it with the crispy mout;watering uttapam.  Unfortunately I do not have a grinder-mixer in our bungalow Kharagpur  (where my husband is a professor at the School of Management at IIT ) so i had to ask my maid to paste it using a SHIL-NORI.
Do you remember the famous song? "Shil-Nori bina chutney kaise boni ?"   Anyway enough by way of prelude; time for the real stuff ... for which you need the following ingredients to make this CCU
  • 2 Cups of rice flour and 1 Cup urad dal powder, soaked in water for over night and mixed well to make a thick batter.
  • pinch of salt
  • One large onion (finely chopped)
  • Green Chillies ( finely chopped)
  • Cheese (grated)
  • Refined oil
Heat a nonstick pan , grease it with refined oil and place1 tablespoon  thick  batter. Spread it with a spatula. Then sprinkle onion, chillies on top.Turn upside down and add grated cheese on the hot side of the uttapam. Keep it on the nonstick tawa till it becomes crispy and the cheese melts.

Serve hot with coconut chutney.
