  1. please tell the ingredents in cup sizes as i dont have a weighing scale.
    thanks in advance

    1. Hi Nidhi, you don't need weighing scale for measuring the ingredients. Hope you have something in your house for measuring rice for cooking. You can use that to measure. 1 cup will be either 200 ml or 250 ml mostly. Measure accordingly. Moreover you can also measure the ingredients in ratio too. For eg, for 2.5 cups Raagi, you can use 1.25 cups sago and so on. Although 1 ml is not exactly equal to 1 g, you can measure in ml itself. The ratio is important.

  2. hello sundari,
    what is omam here?
