I love sweets but don't want to make complicated dishes thanks for posting it, one question which sooji should I buy as there are many which one gets in  Bangalore, like cheeroti,idli sooji,upma sooji... It always confuses me.

  • Madraasi Deepa Upma sooji means you need not fry, plain sooji means have to fry. Don't go for cheeroti and idli sooji. You check out step by step pictorial by clicking the URL given above. Thanks a lot. Stay tuned :)
