Have you heard of?Avena sativa?

Ok Let me give you clues… It is a cereal. Humans have been consuming it for ages. Well Horses seem to love them too.. Some brands of Dog and Chicken food also use them.. ya its a great cattle feed.

Well ask me how to make some one feel not so good about a food item … sorry guys that was not the intention.

Ok breaking the suspense .. Its nothing but our dearmost OATS which we consume as either Oatmeal or Rolled Oats.

Oats has great health benefits as we all know.. It can lower LDL the bad?cholesterol, you know the one that seems to hurt hearts a lot. ?Oats contain more soluble fiber than any other grain, resulting in slower digestion and an extended sensation of fullness (courtesy Wiki). Now you know why people on Diet almost worship Oats like a GOD sent blessing.

Well you can read about the Cancer protecting properties ?of Oats?here.

Eating Oatmeal or Oats porridge everyday …Phew that doesn’t sound fun . If its not easy for us to eat it everyday in the same form forget my toddler eating it everyday.Thats when Sneaky mom avatar comes out to rescue.

Truly?speaking, I actually started experimenting with Oats couple of years back to sneak it into my husbands diet and now my son joined the Guinea Pig league ?:)

This Oats Uthappam recipe I tried it first with leftover dosa batter it came out well.

Later had it at one of my friends place where she used oats with rice flour instead of dosa batter. It tasted great too. So even if you dont have Dosa batter you can still make these uthappams. Well you see I try to make it impossible to give excuses huh ya thats a qualification you will start to earn as a parent. Ok no more stories… here is the recipe for a QUICK FIX HEALTHY BREAKFAST and its TODDLER FRIENDLY TOO.

OATS UTHAPPAM


What’s needed:-

  • 3/4 cup of Oats flour
  • 3/4 cup of Rice flour or Dosa batter
  • 1 medium sized onion chopped fine
  • 2 green chillies chopped fine ( I skipped it for my lil ones sake)
  • a handful of Chopped corriander leaves
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup of butter milk if using Rice flour skip it for dosa batter
  • Water for the batter
  • Oil for shallow frying the Uthappams

How to’s

  1. Mix all the Ingredients well
  2. If you are using rice flour, add buttermilk and then water to make the batter,
  3. If using dosa batter just add water if needed. Resulting batter should be thick and not runny in either cases.
  4. Heat your tava or iron skillet, when its hot enough make thick dosas or Uthappams on a MEDIUM FLAME. When its cooked on one side (golden brown), flip it and cook the other side
  5. Serve with your favourite chutney or sambar.

Thats it… You are ready with a healthy breakfast :)

Cheers,

Koki
