Bajra Uttapa (Bajra Flour)


Bajra Uttapa (Bajra Flour)

Servings: 1 - 2 people
Difficulty Level - Medium
Preparation Time - 25 minutes
Cook Time - 25 min


  • 1 cup bajra flour (pearl millet flour)
  • 1/4 cup rice flour
  • 1/4 cup semolina (optional)
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped vegetables
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • Salt (to taste), Water (as needed)
  • Oil (for cooking)


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the bajra flour, rice flour, semolina (if using), yogurt, ginger paste, cumin seeds, and salt. Mix well.
  • Gradually add water to the flour mixture while stirring to make a thick yet pourable batter. The consistency should be similar to pancake batter.
  • Add the finely chopped vegetables and green chili (if using) to the batter. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  • Let the batter rest for about 10-15 minutes. This allows the flours to hydrate and the flavors to blend together.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with oil.
  • Once the skillet is hot, pour a ladleful of the batter onto the center of the skillet and spread it gently to form a circular uttapa shape. You can make it as thin or thick as you prefer.
  • Cook the uttapa on medium heat for about 2-3 minutes until the bottom side is golden brown and crispy.
  • Flip the uttapa and cook the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes until it is cooked through and browned.
  • Remove the uttapa from the skillet and repeat the process with the remaining batter to make more uttapas.
  • Serve the Bajra Uttapas hot with chutney, yogurt, or any of your favorite toppings.
