Am running this week’s blogging marathon with Millet dishes as theme. After a fabulous,Karnataka’s popular halwa aka Halubai, here comes an another sweet to bookmark without any fail. Thinai rava laddoo makes a prefect sweet to prepare with less efforts for a potluck party or for a get together or else simply for a festival or celebration. Easy to make, its really a great fun to roll this laddoos with your kids as a weekend activity if you have your kids around. We enjoyed these laddoos thoroughly, a must to try if you have barnyard millet in your pantry.
1cup Barnyard millet/Thinai
1cup Semolina /rava
6nos Cardamom seeds
Few broken cashew nuts
Grind the sugar and cardamom seeds together as fine powder.
Meanwhile roast the barnyard millet and semolina separately in a kadai until a nice aroma comes out, put off the stove and let them cool completely..
Grind this roasted barnyard lukket & semolina as powder,add the sugar mixture and mix well.
Heat the ghee and fry the broken cashews until they turns brown.
Add the hot ghee and fried cashews to the barnyard millet,semolina-sugar mixture, mix everything well and make out small balls from the mixture.
You can also use more ghee or milk while making this laddoos.
Store them in an air tightened box.
