Oats uttappam recipe - We all know that oats are very nutritive and low in calories. Varieties of dishes can be prepared with oats. Oats porridge is a very popular dish usually prepared in every house hold in India. But eating porridge for breakfast is very boring. So, I make oats uttappam and serve it with coconut chutney. This is very healthy, filling dish and keeps you energetic till lunch. 

Preparation time - 10 minutes
Cooking time - 20 minutes
Yield - 4 parathas

Ingredients
  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 tbsp semolina / rava
  • 2 tbsp bengal gram flour / besan
  • 1/2 tbsp. sugar or jaggery
  • 1/4 cup grated fresh coconut 
  • 1 tbsp yogurt / curd 
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger, chopped
  • 1 small sized tomato, chopped
  • 1 green chili, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or ghee as required

Method
  1. In a large bowl, add all the ingredients except oil. Add little bit of water and mix well to make a soft dropping consistency batter. Keep it aside for 10 - 15 minutes.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan on a medium flame and apply ghee or oil on it.
  3. Spread the batter on the pan to form a round and medium thick uttapam 
  4. Pour 1/4 tsp of ghee around the edges.
  5. Cook covered on a medium flame till the base turns golden brown. 
  6. Remove the lid, flip the uttapam and cook till golden brown.
  7. When done, remove the oats uttapam on a serving plate. Serve hot with ghee and coconut chutney.
