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. Link⇒  Lentil Based Recipes from my blog

Possible Alterations for the recipe, ‘Tri Dal Grain Free Uthappam / Tri Lentil Savoury Pancakes’:

Fermenting the batter: There is no need for fermentation, but its fine even if you do. After grinding the soaked lentils, transfer into a wide bowl. Leave the bowl on kitchen platform for about 6 to 8 hrs. Or else use an Instant Pot Yogurt Mode for fermentation.

Other suitable toppings: You may use any other toppings such as tomatoes, grated carrot, grated cucumber etc.

Using ghee: Adding a tablespoon of ghee instead of oil, while making the uthappam tastes even great with that fresh aroma.

Oil Free option: Yes, you can make these uthappam without using a single drop of oil. Just follow this method from my own blog⇒  Oil Free Healthy Dosa / Without Oil Dosa (Full Video recipe)

  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!!

  2. Tri-dal uttapam is very nice & healthy too.excellent cook & thank Praveena waiting for more new Receipes
