I always have on hand, they are such a versatile ingredient in indian cooking. You can not only make yummy porridge out of it, but you can make delicious breakfast from it too, like your basic idli, pongal, dosa, kuzhi paniyaram, kozhukattai, upma and this uthappam..
I have quite few other oats recipes also in this blog..U can check all of them right here. Now this uthappam is great for breakfast, since it is topped with all healthy veggies, it looks colourful so your kids will surely love it..You can serve this with any chutney of your choice..But tomato chutney and coconut chutney goes well with it..Even sambar is not a bad idea..
