OATS-RAVA UTTHAPAM/ AN INSTANT UTTHAPAM WITH SOOJI AND OATS

UTTHAPAM, A classic South Indian pancake, loaded with seasonal veggies. Authentically, the batter is prepared with the rice and lentil by soaking and fermenting for hours. But if the same batter is not available, an instant batter can be prepared by adding rava to the curd or buttermilk. The instant batter is instantly fermented by adding some baking soda or fruit salt. Any vegetables can be added on the top of the utthapam while it is cooking in the pan. This filling pancake can be enjoyed in any course of meal, from breakfast to the dinner with different chutneys and sambhar
