Instant Potato Uttapam ~ Lunch Box Recipes

Today I have tried a new version of Potato Uttaapam ( Savory Pancakes) that are perfect for LunchBox or for evening snacks. It takes only around 15 min to make these and made with minimalistic and simple ingredients. My kids and I loved these in Breakfast, LunchBox and as evening snack. One recipe fits in all the meals, here is the recipe, Njoy!

Potato Uttapam ~ Savory Potato Pancakes


Potato - 2 ( medium, i have used Russet)

Onion - 1/2 medium

Egg - 2

Green Chili - 1 optional

Cilantro - 2 Tbsp ( chopped)

Salt - 1 tsp

Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp

Taco Seasoning - 1 tsp

Crushed Red Pepper - 1/4 tsp

Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)

Pam Oil - for spraying the griddle

*yields - 4 servings


  1. Peel and grate Potato (in small grate setting), Peel and grate Onion (in large grate setting), mix both in a medium bowl and set aside for 2 min. You see water gets oozed out from both veggies, drain the water that comes out ( don't do any squeezing, we need the left over moisture to reside in the veggies that helps to make the batter). 
  2. In a medium bowl beat 2 eggs, and add all the spices and seasonings listed in ingredients (Salt, Black Pepper, Taco Seasoning, Red Pepper Flakes, Red Chili powder if using), add potato & onion grate, add chopped green chili and cilantro, mix every thing well, it turns out into batter consistency (no need to add any extra water)
  3. Heat the pan on stove or electric griddle, spray with PAM oil, once the griddle is hot, add spoonfuls of batter in the small pancake size, spray with PAM again, cook these pancakes on both sides for 1 to 2 min until both sides are cooked evenly. Repeat until batter is done, it yields about 12 to 15 small to medium size pancakes.

Transfer to plate and serve as it is for Breakfast as it is savory,, or serve in Lunch Box as a side or serve as evening snack for kids retuned from school.
