Oats Uttapa / Uttapam recipe

Otas 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.
