For oats uttapam batter

  • ½ cup Quick cooking oats Or rolled oats
  • ¼ cup Fine rava (sooji or cream of wheat)
  • ¼ cup Besan (gram flour)
  • ⅔ to ¾ cup Water or add as required
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • teaspoon Baking soda
  • Salt as required

Veggies

  • 1 Small to medium onion, Thinly sliced
  • 1 Small to medium tomato, Thinly sliced

Instructions

making oats uttapam batter

  • Take 1/2 cup quick cooking oats in a mixer or grinder. You can even take 1/2 cup of rolled oats.
  • Grind the oats to a fine flour and take flour in a mixing bowl.
  • Now add ¼ cup rava/sooji/cream of wheat and 1/4 cup besan/gram flour. Also add salt as per taste.
  • Pour 2/3 cup water. Mix very well and make a smooth mixture without any lumps.
  • Cover the bowl and let the oats, rava and besan flour soak in water for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile rinse and then slice the onion, bell pepper & tomato thinly. Also chop 1 green chili and some coriander leaves.
  • On the same chopping board or tray, mix the veggies and keep aside.
  • After 20 minutes, the batter will thicken as the oats, besan and sooji will absorb water.
  • I added some more 1/4 cup water as the batter had become slightly thick. Before soaking, I added first 2/3 cup water and later added 1/4 cup more. 
  • Addition of water will depend on quality of oats, besan and sooji. You can add more water if the batter becomes thick. Do add water as required to make a medium consistency batter. If the batter is of medium consistency even after soaking, then do not add any water.
  • Now add 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Mix very well.
  • Then add 1/8 teaspoon baking soda. About 2 to 3 pinches of baking soda. Mix again very well.

making oats uttapam

  • On a medium flame, heat a cast iron pan or a non stick pan. If using a cast iron pan, then drizzle ½ tsp of oil and spread it with the spoon.
  • Lower the flame. Take a ladle full of the batter and pour the batter on the tawa. Gently spread the batter to get a round circle.
  • Now spread the mixed veggies all over the batter. With a spatula press the veggies lightly, so that they stick to the batter.
  • Sprinkle a few drops of oil on the center and on the sides of the uttapam.
  • Cook till the base is done. While cooking these uttapams, you can regulate the flame to low or medium.
  • Then flip it and cook the side with the veggies.
  • Cook this side till the veggies are lightly caramelized or golden.
  • Remove and serve oats uttapam hot or warm with coconut chutney.

Notes

Tips for making oats uttapam
