how to make oats uthappam

In a bowl, mix together powdered oats, rava, curd, cumin seeds and salt needed. Keep it aside for half an hour.

After half an hour- add finely chopped onions, green chilli, grated carrot, cabbage, coriander leaves and mix well.

Add enough water to get an adai batter consistency.(approximately little less or little more than 1/2 cup of water) See the picture of the batter above to get an idea.

Heat a non stick tawa, when it is hot enough, pour a ladle of batter and spread a little. The uttapam should be thick like regular uttapams. Now reduce the flame to medium.

Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa and close it with a lid if needed but not necessary.

Once it starts lifting around the corners, flip the uthappam to the other side and drizzle just 1/4 tsp of oil.

Once it is cooked, remove from the tawa and serve hot with chutney. Repeat the same process for the rest of the batter.

Note - Oats Uttapam is very flimsy, so handle it gently while flipping over to the other side.
