OATS UTTHAPAM

I was never an oats person, but as when I came to realize the benefits, I started loving it, and wanted to add in Oats in everything.....well, almost!!!

When you are looking for a delicious yet healthy start to your day, you know you are on the right track towards keeping yourself fit for your life. Nothing beats beginning your morning with a meal that will keep you energized and active throughout.


A healthy breakfast is the call of the hour for every household and each individual be it a child, a teenager, an adult or old person. Everybody should vie to fulfil the nutritional needs of their body with a breakfast that will add to your lifespan. A little effort and some planning is worth all of it.

Addiing Oats to your meals can provide you with the kickstart you are looking for. High on fibre especially beta-glucans , which aid in reducing blood cholesterol levels. They are a high source of Vitamin E , and consumption of Oats regularly aid in control of Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure, Anti Cancer, along with regulating your bowel function.

This multifunctional cereal can be added in your daily lives in many ways – add them to your cookies, breads, chappati flour, cakes – try adding a handful into all your cooking.

Today I am giving a recipe to make delicious savoury pancake made of oats. Addition of carrots give them a boost in antioxidants and Vitamin A. They are easy and quick to make, and will never fail your taste buds



Preparation Time : 5minutes


Cooking Time : 5 minutes


Ingredients :-

½ cup – oats
¼ cup – coarse semolina
½ cup – low fat yoghurt (maziwa lala)
1 – onion chopped finely (small)
1 – green chilli (optional)
A small bunch of coriander leaves – chopped finely
½ carrot – grated
Ginger – a small piece grated


Method :-
Mix all the ingredients except the carrot and keep aside for 2-3 minutes.
Add enough water to make it into a pouring consistency
Heat a non stick pan and when its hot pour a ladle full of the batter and spread it
Spread the grated carrots on the top
Let it cook on one side and flip it over cooking the carrot side too

Serve it with any accompaniment of your liking or eat it plain.  If cooked on a good quality non stick pan it is zero oil yet delicious!!

 I served it with a simple takkali kootan (tomato onion curry).

Oats is a very healthy, in fact the best for lowering cholesterol. I add a tbps into my drink to start my day.

Therefore, I like how you brought in oats and married it with other ingredients for a lovely splash of taste.
