  3. Thank you Sharan for your feedback!!!

    Oats Uttapam are really soft, so turn once they are cooked from one side. Once uttapam is cooked it will turn crispy from bottom side and will leave pan.

    Or alternatively you can add some more rawa to the mixture, let it rest for a while or until rawa is soaked.

    Hope this helps. Do try again and would like to hear back from you.
