Oothappam/Proved Rice Pancakes

Oothappam is a type of dosa or rice pancake.All "Malabarees" would be familiar with it.It is mostly prepared only during occasions or parties,since people find it a bit messy and tough to prepare for day today needs.But it is simple and yummy and can be made often,since it has no such hectic jobs.These are rice pancakes which is prepared after proofing the mixture.Since it is prepared so,it is too soft but filling too.
Moving on to the recipe...

Serves:4 to 5;Soaking Time:3 hours;Preparation time:2 hrs,Cooking time:30 Minutes


1 1/2 Cup Biryani rice/Cheriyari/Basmati Rice
1 Cup Boiled rice
1/2 Tspn Yeast
Milk of half a coconut
3/4 tspn salt
Grated Carrot and diced Cilantro/Coriander leaves to garnish


  1. Firstly soak  the rice for 3 hours.
  2. Then grind it with all the other ingredients other than carrot and cilantro.
  3. Keep for 1 hour or more until it rises and becomes fluffy filled with air.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan and once it catches heat reduce the flame to a little more than simmering.
  5. Pour a  ladle of the mixture onto the pan and spread in a way that it remains a little thick and is of 15cm in diameter.
  6. Immediately after spreading the mixture,sprinkle the grated carrot and cilantro onto it and cover with a lid.
  7. Normally it gets cooked within 35 to 40 seconds.To test whether it is done ,slightly touch the center of the oothappam and see if it is sticky.
  8. If it is sticky,cook it for few more seconds with lid on it.
  9. Oothappam cooking process
  10. Do not flip the oothappam upside down.
  11. Take it off the pan and place each one separately for few seconds as it tends to stick to each other when hot.
It is an amazing combination with thick beef curry or egg in ground coconut gravy.
Note:Do not stir the batter and break the air pockets in it while preparing the dosas.Once done so,the oothappam would not be too soft.
