Oats Uthappam

Oats are considered a very healthy food. So how about a healthy and fiber rich oats dosa for breakfast?


Oats - 1/4 cup
Rava - 1/4 cup
Curd - 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 1, chopped finely
Green chilli - 1, chopped finely
Grated carrots - 2 tbsp
Grated ginger - 1 tsp, approximately
Curry leaves - one full strand, chopped finely
Coriander leaves - a handful, chopped finely
Salt and hing as per taste

Optionally you can also add fried cashew nuts to the batter as you do for rawa dosa.

  1. Powder the oats finely. Alternately, you can dry roast the oats, cool down and grind it to a coarse powder for added flavor.
  2. In a bowl mix oats, rawa, curd, cumin seeds and salt and set aside for half an hour. After half an hour add the other ingredients (onion, green chilli, grated carrots, ginger, curry leaves and coriander leaves) and mix well. Add water to make it to an adai batter consistency.
  3. Heat a tawa, once it is hot enough, take a laddle full of batter and spread it to a thick circle as you would do for uthappams. Drizzle some drops of oil, cook on both sides and enjoy with any tangy, spicy chutney or coconut chutney. Handle the uthappams very carefully while flipping on sides as they may break apart.
