Quinoa Uttapam with Leeks and Cherry Tomatoes


Not only am I sneaking vegetables in this super loaded uttapam recipe but also my infamous new friend “Quinoa”. This way we get good vegetable and grain intake!

I replaced the usual onion with leeks, so the flavour wasn’t compromised but enhanced and the juicy cherry tomato added a certain buzzy tang! Yummmm!
I used a packet mix for the batter, which makes this dish even more simple to make. One for my top ten for children’s favourite meals.

Hope all of you are having a stress free day! Do try these out and let me know…until the next time…Much love, D x


1 dosa flour packet, made upon instruction
2 tbsp natural yoghurt
10 cherry tomatoes halved
2 leeks sliced
1 small cup of pre cooked quinoa
2 garlic cloves minced
Sunflower oil to shallow fry
Chilli optional


Mix the dosa flour upon instruction in a large mixing bowl but leave the batter a little thicker than instructed


Add in the garlic, leeks, tomato, quinoa and yoghurt Combine well




Meanwhile preheat a large non stick frying pan with about half a tablespoon of oil on a medium heat

Pour in 2 small ladlefuls of batter into the pan. Reduce the heat to low and allow to set well and then turn over. Ensure both sides are cooked and are golden brown in colour



Repeat for the rest of the batter


Serve with a mint yoghurt chutney
