tapam is a favorite South Indian recipe, usually made of semolina and rice. This recipe is a healthy twist to the regular uttapam. Oats are healthy for heart and are a dieter's delight. This simple and easy recipe can be enjoyed both at breakfast and at lunch. It tastes best when served with coconut chutney.

To make batter: In a bowl, combine oats, curd and water to form a mixture and leave aside for 15-20 minutes. Mix to form a smooth batter. Add salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, onion, green chilies and coriander leaves and mix well.
To make uttapam: Heat a heavy non-stick flat bottom tawa over medium high heat. Smear with 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and put 1-1/2 tablespoon of prepared batter on the tawa. Spread gently and evenly to make a round of around 5-6 inch diameter. Cook from one side over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Add 1/2 teaspoon of oil on the edges and using a spatula, gently turn the uttapam on the other side. Cook on the other side too for another 4-5 minutes.
Make remaining uttapams in a similar manner. Serve hot with coconut chutney.
