Lentils / Legumes are the best source of protein for vegan / vegetarian diet. Being the highest source of protein, I definitely include every single day  diet. Sometimes in the breakfast or snack or part of the main meal. We are so much used in having lentils in our daily life that, we get an empty feel with a meal that doesn’t have a lentil based dish in it.

I have already included many recipes with lentils /legumes in my blog. This uthappam / savoury pan cakes recipe is very unique because, it comes under Keto Diet as it does not include any grains in it. It also has the goodness of protein from 3 different lentils. It is evidently suitable for people with strict diet plans, and for those in search of easy protein rich recipe. A Vegan, Glutenfree, Proteinrich, Grainfree, Keto friendly, Weight Loss Diet recipe.

This, tri dal uthappam / pancakes is basically an Indian breakfast recipe, but suitable for any time of the day too. You may use any other toppings suc as tomatoes, grated carrot, grated cucumber etc.

  1. Thankyou so much for this recipe Praveena, this was our delicious dinner! I wasn’t patient, so I tried to use food processor to blend the dal only after 3 hours – got a bit of crunchy parts to it 🙂 Next time I’ll soaked it longer and use the blender.

    1. You are most welcome, Dian! 🙂 Thats so nice of you to let me know! Glad that you enjoyed them. 🙂
      And, 3 hours of soaking is very much fine, but the food processor is not enough for grinding, you need a blender / grinder. Hope this helps!!
