Bread uttapam is again one of those easy and instant recipes that can be prepared for breakfast, lunch or dinners.

I normally make this bread uttapam for dinner whenever I want something quick to prepare and light on the tummy. These uttapams are a healthy breakfast and lunch options too. You can pair them up with any salad or fruits on the side for a complete meal.

As the name suggests, bread uttapam is a quick and easy uttapam using bread slices. Bread is first dipped in water and then blended along with some flours and rava to prepare the batter. As for any uttapam, you can top this with vegetables you prefer. I kept it simple, so I added just onions and tomatoes. You can add grated carrots, boiled corn, capsicum and even make it the Italian way by adding some cheese.

Whenever I post any instant recipes, I get a wonderful response from you all which really helps me to share more such lovely easy recipes πŸ™‚
