Oats Uttappam

September 22, 2008


My entry to Jhiva for this month is Oats Uttappam. Thanks Suganya for hosting and I am very happy to contribute this recipe in this event.

As I have already mentioned in my previous recipe, oats are rich in protein and fiber and including oats in your daily menu helps you reduces cholesterol and also helps to control sugar level in the blood.

So here goes my recipe.


  • One cup of oats
  • Half cup of wheat rava
  • Quarter cup of green gram
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon rice flour
  • 2 green chillies
  • 2 red chillies
  • 1 tsp jeera
  • Salt as required
  • Cooking oil for making uttappam
  • One onion (finely chopped)
  • One tomato (finely chopped)
  • Few coriander leaves
  • Dosai mirch powder (milagai podi) for garnishing


  • Soak Oats for 15 minutes
  • Soak wheat rava for half an hour
  • Soak green gram for 8 hours
  • Grind the soaked oats, wheat rava, green gram, green chillies, red chillies, jeera to a smooth paste
  • Mix rice flour and salt to the ground batter
  • Allow the batter to ferment for 4 to 5 hours

  • Heat tawa and pour the ladle full of batter to make it round shape and little thicker in size
  • Sprinkle chopped onion, chopped tomato¬† and coriander leaves
  • Pour oil on all the sides of uttappam
  • When it is cooked on one side, flip the uttappam on other side
  • When it turns brown, sprinkle dosai milagai podi on the top of uttappam
  • Serve hot with chutney, sambar or fresh curd

Note: The consistency of the batter should be like dosa batter.
