Recipe: Oats and Rawa Uttapam

This is a quick and easy savoury pancake that I make with rolled oats and Rawa (suji). Oats, apart from being a rich source of dietary fibres, also has a good amount of minerals, phytonutrients and anti-oxidants. Coupled with the buttermilk, rawa and veggies in this recipe, it helps make a healthy start to the day.

Thank you Sarika, for giving the idea for this recipe..


1 cup rolled oats

½ cup Rawa (suji or semolina)

1 small onion, finely  chopped

3-4 green chillies, finely chopped

A handful of coriander leaves, finely chopped

1 grated capsicum

300 ml Buttermilk

Salt to taste

Oil for pan-frying

(You can add more shredded vegetables of your choice. I usually add a cup of shredded cabbage or grated carrots. Skipped it this time)

  1. Combine the rolled oats, rawa, onion, chillies, coriander leaves, capsicum, any other veggies that you wish to add and salt in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add buttermilk to the mixture and mix well to make a batter.
  3. Allow the mixture to stand for atleast 10-15 minutes for the oats and rawa to soak up the moisture. Adjust the consistency of the batter with more buttermilk or water to get a pan-cake like consistency.
  4. Heat a pan well and spread a few drops of oil on it. Now spread the batter evenly on the pan and cook for a few minutes.
  5. Add a few more drops of oil on the edges and flip the uttapam. Cook on the other side for another couple of minutes.
  6. Serve with coconut chutney or ketchup.
