  1. Can we add 1 cup of urud powder for flavor and protein?

    1. this idli does not require it. In case if you are particular, avoid oats and add just half cup of urad dal powder

  2. I did d exact method written bt I failed. d consistency was exactly like milkshake consistency. bt wrn my idli maker gave sound, I opened it to check and found d batter spreaded everywhere. den I added Sooji to d batter for thick consistency. Totally failed recepi

    1. Hi sorry for the very late reply..kindly follow this another version of measurements and try.. Adding eno salt just before pouring the batter to plates is very important. If you add it in advance you may get a messed one
