MILLET AND OATS UTHAPPAM
Millet and oats uthappam is an instant savory pancakes and a good alternate from the usual uthappams.Oats are considered safe for those with a gluten allergy and easier for most people to digest. It’s a healthy breakfast option and can be prepared in a jiffy with the ingredients available at home. As I’m always inclined to vegetables, I’ve added green bell pepper and carrot…..for the sake of color combination. You can also add any color bell peppers, shredded cabbage or even grated zucchini. For me cooking is always my comfort. I know the taste of my kid so I tried to infuse those vegetables in whatever I prepare. He likes carrot and capsicum but not a great fan of millet…..so I combine 2 likes with 1 dislike and prepared his favourite pancakes/uthappam……and that’s the way to make them healthy and happy.
