But it's time to cheer up as Boldsky has come up with a tasty solution for you which will keep you delighted throughout the day.

Uthappam is a tasty breakfast recipe from South India. It is similar to the dosa in many respects but the addition of vegetables as topping makes the difference. Uthappam is usually prepared with rice. But here we are using oats, whole wheat bread powder and yogurt, topped with mixed vegetables to make this breakfast recipe suitable for diabetic patients. Oats are an extremely healthy alternative for diabetic patients as they help in checking bad cholestrol, improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes.
