  2. Can we use 2 cups 0f oats instead of sooji??
    Will it taste good?

    1. Hi, You cant make Oats Idly without Sooji. If you use more quantity of Oats instead of Sooji, the Idly will be sticky and so hard. I have tried making the Idlies without sooji and taking 1Cup of Oats and 1/2Cup of Urad Dal. But it dint work well.
      You can do onething, instead of Sooji, you can add Rice or Quinoa and blend the Idli Batter.
