Oats have tendency to become slimy once they are cooked. So here sooji is added to prevent that.

Also the oats will make the uttapam dense. So addition of pinch of baking soda is MUST. Soda will make it light and fluffy just like the regular uttapam.

This is the instant oats uttapam, so no grinding, fermenting required. Just 20-30 minutes of soaking time will do the magic.

Most of the time my family like to have uttapam as a dinner instead of breakfast. So I make sambar and chutney to go with it. This makes light yet filling meal.

When it comes to the oats, I prefer the simple oatmeal with honey, cinnamon and apple. But hubby never prefers the sweet breakfast. So I make many savory dishes using oats like oats upma  //  oats cheela  // oats dhoka  //  oats muthia for breakfast or weekend snack.

9) During the resting time, oats and sooji will soak up the water. Check the batter consistency. If needed you can add little more water for right consistency. The batter consistency should be thick yet pourable.

10) At time of making uttapam, heat the cast iron tawa or non-stick pan on medium heat. And add baking soda to the to the batter and mix.

11) Once tawa is hot. If your cast iron tawa is already seasoned then no need to add oil. If using non-stick pan then drizzle little oil. Then pour a ladleful or two of batter and let it flow itself. The thickness of it should be medium thick.
