Vegetarian Delights of NYC: Uppma at Dosa Hutt
My favorite dish lately at the sainted Dosa Hutt (add the extra "t" for extra tastiness!) is not a dosa, an iddly, or an utthapam. It's something I first tried a while ago at a grad school get-together, brought by an Indian colleague. It was a porridge made from cream of wheat. But, while cream of wheat is pale and bland, uppma is the opposite of that--shot with spices, nuts, minced vegetables, and leaves, as if you'd dropped a ball of hot cereal onto the forest floor and rolled it around a bit.
At Dosa Hutt, the dish comes with two homemade chutneys, and I can't think of a better brunch or cure for a hangover. 45-63 Bowne Street, Flushing, Queens, 718-961-5897
Many people order the uppma, just because they like to say "uppma"
