Oats are one of the healthiest options for meeting our daily nutrition requirements of protein, carbohydrates, and fiber. Consuming oats in any form leads to a feeling of satiation and hunger pangs are kept at bay for long. Oats Uttapam is one of the easiest and quickest breakfast/snack to make. Addition of various vegetables elevates the health factor even more. It goes well with a number of combinations like with grated carrots, chopped capsicums, onions, tomatoes, paneer, cheese etc.
Remove and cool for sometime.
Place half of the quantity in a mixer jar and grind to a powder.
Similarly, grind the remaining half.
Take the powdered oats, rawa, curd in a deep bowl.
Whisk to a smooth, lump-free paste by adding water as needed.
It has to be slightly thinner than the idli batter and free-flowing, yet thick.
Rest it for 15 minutes.
Add more water if needed as both oats and rawa soak a lot of water.
Add the salt and the red chilli powder and whisk well.
Heat a non-stick pan on low flame
Pour about 2 to 3 tablespoons of the batter in the center.
With a spoon or a ladle, spread it in concentric circles.
Put a teaspoon of oil all over the sides of the uttapam.
Let it cook for a minute.
Now sprinkle some of the onion slices, chopped tomato pieces, a little of the chopped green chilli and a bit of the coriander leaves on top.
Again put in little oil all over the tawa.
When the base gets cooked to a golden brown color, carefully flip the uttapam.
Let this side cook for about 5 minutes before removing on a serving plate.
Serve with coconut chutney.
Add any vegetable toppings of choice.
