Instant Brown Bread & Oats Uthappam


                                            Bread is something which I “have” to see on the counter always {and its kind of an OCD!}.. But seriously, with so many recipe options available with it ranging from a quick breakfast of Bread Usli to a delicious snack of Bread Pizza along with a low calorie sweet treat Eggless French Toast, who can resist not stocking it up.. Then when my brother suddenly requested for Masala Pav {and he was to leave the next day}, I had to buy a packet of Pavs for a delicious mumbai style dinner… But din’t I have a packet of bread already waiting to be used? And 2 Pavs got leftover from this packet.. I was stuck now.. So many leftovers!!

                                           With Bread Usli and Sandwiches, the packet of bread got over sooner than I had expected.. But the Pavs were still remaining and the expiry date was nearing like some exam date! Now what could I do with just two of them??

                                             After a lot of recipe “hunting” when I was just about to give a toss to both the Pavs, I was reminded of a recipe my aunt, Anita Pai had shared with me.. It was lying conveniently copy pasted on my notepad and completely forgotten.. I just jumped with Joy! 

                                              As i made the Uthappams for breakfast the next morning, my hubby was smiling all the way {Happy that his wifey was back to cooking & clicking! I guess he missed them too since a fortnight..} The Uthappams were of course tasty and you could never guess that the super food Oats has been added.. That is something I loved the most about this recipe and of course the way it transformed {Am i being dramatic? ;)} my leftover bread into something so delicious… Hats off to my aunt for this unique Uthappam idea! 

                                             Can’t help but also add that it tasted almost like vegetable cutlets with the bread crumbs and the veggies…. I am definitely going to save some of my brown bread for this yumminess… You too try and enjoy! Happy and Healthy Cooking!!

Thanks Anita mai for your Amazing recipe!
