Eating merely anything for breakfast will not serve the purpose. It is, therefore, quintessential to plan your breakfast each day, particularly for those looking to drop a few kilos.
A wholesome and well-balanced feast should consist of carbohydrates for energy, proteins for muscle structure and fiber for boosting metabolism.
The recipe I have for you is a much loved and relished South Indian dish Uttapam.
Another reason why we love eating uttapam is that it is the Indian Variant of Pizza. Unlike Dosa, Uttapam is thicker and porous.
Now what is unique about this uttapam recipe is that instead of rice flour we will be using wheat flour.
Why wheat you ask?
The efficacious health benefits of wheat include its capability to control obesity, stimulate energy, impede type 2 diabetes, increase metabolism, and inhibit asthma and gallstones. It also boosts digestion.
And veggies, you can add a whole lot of veggies to make it taste great, healthy, and crunchy.
Let’s get started with the recipe!
