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.
