I try to include oats In different ways in Indian breakfasts. I have already shared recipes of Oats idli and Oats dosa.

In the uttapams, I have added veggies like onion, bell pepper, tomatoes as a topping. You can even add grated carrots and beetroots. If you do not have any veggies, you can make them plain. But with topped veggies the taste is better.

You can make these instant oats uttapam not only for breakfast, but also for brunch or for a quick evening snack. You can also check these recipes:

These oats uttapams taste good the way they are. Though you can serve them with your favorite coconut chutney.

  6. Hi,

    I would like to thank for the wonderful website. I really enjoying making the recipes 🙂 it works with me from the first time.
    this recipe looks very Delicious. I want to try it but I don’t use cream of wheat, is there any replacement? for example can I use oat flour instead?

    Thank you very much.5 stars

    • thanks shaimaa. add rice flour instead of cream of wheat. too much of oats won’t give any structure to the uttapams and they will be very soft.

  7. Very tasty.. My husband loved it.. You have explained it real wel.. Thank you4 stars

    • thanks lalita. 2 to 3 servings.

  11. Hi, Oats uttapam recipe seems very interesting. but can we add curd instead of lemon juice?

    • kanan, you can add 1/4 cup curd. i will also update in the post. i forgot to update. thanks for your query.

      • Is baking soda needed in the oats uttapam recipe? Is there a substitute?

        Thanks for oats recipes

        • welcome shruti. baking soda leavens and helps the uttapam to become soft and have a good light texture. you can skip baking soda. instead of baking soda you can also add baking powder. same amount will be fine.
