Pizza Uttapam - Savory Indian Pancakes Pizza

For my friends, who’re wondering ‘What is an Uttapam’?

It’s a savory Indian pancake made using fermented (rice + lentil) mix and a very popular Indian recipe.

The batter is made mixing both the flours together and needs to be properly fermented.

Hence the Uttapam process actually starts 24-36 hours (depending on how hot it is) earlier than you make it.

But the MTR Uttapam Mix gives you the same flavor minus the hassles of doing the fermentation yourself.

Hence, you can easily make this Uttapam instantly and treat everyone to a delicious hot breakfast.
