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
Serve hot with coconut chutney.
