Healthy Oats Uttapam recipe.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 2 cups of boiled idli rice / short grained rice
  • 1 .5 cup of oats ( i used Quaker)
  • 1 /2 cup of split black lentils (urad dal)
  • ½ cup carrot chopped into cubes
  • water and salt as required
  • few drops of oil for frying uttapams
How to make the recipe?
  1. Wash the rice, soak the rice, oats, urad dal in water for 4-5 hrs or until they swell. If the rice is looking dry add more water. The rice may swell depending on the humidity and climatic conditions so might take more time then expected.
  2. Drain excess water from the soaked rice and oats. Combine them into a blender and grind until smooth, soft batter is formed.
  3. You could grind them into batches if it's over-loading your grinder. Combine the dosa batter into a large vessel.
  4. Allow the batter to ferment for 6-8 hrs, it may take longer for the batter to ferment if your country is cold.
  5. Remove a cup of fermented batter, add little salt to the batter. Keep the rest of batter into the fridge or freezer.
  6. Place a dosa tava or pan over the heat. Grease the tava with oil and wipe with a slice of onion or a potato slice. Again add few drops of oil.
  7. Once the pan is hot, but not very hot, add a scoopful of dosa batter towards the center. Don't spread the uttapam just spread some carrot cubes all over.
  8. Sprinkle and spread some oil over them. Just cover the dosa with a lid so the upper side cooks and there is no need to flip the dosa.
  9. When you see the edges changing color and becoming crisp. Remove the uttapam gently.
  10. It's ready , repeat the same process with the rest of your batter.
  11. Serve oats uttapam with coconut chutney and sambar.
Notes
1. It's important to grease the pan before making uttapam or dosas. If the batter is sticking to the pan then wipe with a wet cloth and try again. It's better to use good quality of pan while frying dosas. But if you are using a non stick pan then don't use a wet cloth just wipe with a slice of onion or potato else your pan might get spoiled.
2. Also the heat should be medium else they might get burnt.
3. The batter has to be blended well else the result won't be good.
4. The batter has to be of thicker consistency for uttapams just like idli batter.
