Looking for a great snack/breakfast which is healthy, fast to prepare and kid-friendly. Then this post is something to check out. S is not a great fan of Poha in upma style(which by the way happens to be my fav). So I try and sneak poha in dosas, cutlets and such. This is yet another experiment which was very much appreciated at home. I made these without adding chillies and ginger for the kids and they loved them with ketchup. I made mini uthappams specifically for the kids. They were so cute that I decided those would be the pictures to be posted here!

Poha-Oats-Quinoa Uthappam

Ingredients - 

Poha 1 1/2 cups (I used thin poha)
Quinoa 1/2 cup
Oats 3/4 cup
Buttermilk 3-4 cups or as needed (or beaten curds if you prefer)
Onion finely chopped 1/2 cup
Carrot grated 1/2 cup
Tomato finely chopped 1/2 cup 
Green chillies as needed
Ginger Paste 1 tsp
Coriander leaves finely chopped 3 Tbsp
Salt to taste
*These uthappams taste awesome even without Quinoa.
* Any choice of veggies can be used. I just happened to use whatever was readily available at home.

Method Of Preparation - 

Roast oats and quinoa until they are golden brown. Grind them to a coarse powder upon cooling.

Wash poha/rice flakes/atukulu and mix it with buttermilk and mix well without lumps.

Add the oats-quinoa powder to the poha-buttermilk mixture and mix well without any lumps.

Add the chopped onions, tomatoes, green chillies, ginger paste, grated carrot, salt and chopped coriander leaves.

Ensure the batter is like uthappam batter.

Poha-Oats-Quinoa Uthappam

In a heated tawa/griddle, pour ladle full of batter and gently spread it around in a circle. Drizzle the edges with oil if preferred. Cook on both sides and remove onto a serving plate.

Continue for the rest of the batter or until desired.

Serve with tomato ketchup or chutney of your choice.
