Cheela or uthappam are Indian style pancakes made either with wheat flour,gram flour ,lentils or semolina.They are good option of making quick,easy and healthy breakfast .You can also pack cheela’s for kids tiffin box as they taste good even when they are cold .So whenever I want to make something quick and easy then Rava upma and quick rava uttapam instantly came in my mind.This is quite an easy recipe with few basic ingredient needed to make it . Its quite easy to digest so good for breakfast lunch or dinner.
Its my daughters favorite recipe so I make it often, I love to add vegetables in it but you can avoid it for your fussy eaters. Addition of tomatoes and capsicum gives a nice crunch and tangy taste to the mild uttapam. You can serve this rava uttapam with coconut chutney or any spicy and tangy chutney or sauce of your choice.
I love sooji uthapams as they don’t need overnight soaking and grinding, just make the batter and rest for few minutes and your batter is ready .You can make the sooji cheela plain with just green chili and coriander or can add loads of chopped vegetables in it to make it healthy .I always prefer to add what ever vegetables I had in my refrigerator. you can slice vegetables in roundels and garnish like pizza or chop finely both ways its fine,it depend on your choice.
You can make the batter and keep it refrigerated for 3- 4 days but add tomatoes and Eno only when you want to make. You can serve this rava uttapam with coconut chutney, green chutney or any spicy and tangy chutney or sauce of your choice.
