Hare Krishna!

Nice recipe. Thank you for your post.

I am Vysya too. However, my wife soaks the regular rice in water, grinds it coarsely and then air dries it to make the "biyam nooga" and . Your recipe is simple and easier. When cooking your way, does it taste the same as "biyam ooga"? What about the idli rava that we get in Indian stores? It is similar to "biyam nooga". When my wife is away i India, this is quick and easy breakfast item to make.
