I had some thinai flour after making thinai idiyappam. So I decided to make sweet recipe in that flour. I saw this recipe in Kurinji Kadhambam. I tried it. It came out well. It tastes like krishna sweets mysore pak.
It is a very easy recipe. It is very good for growing children.
Now let us see how to make thinai Burfi
Recipe Source: Kurinji Kadhambam
- Thinai(foxtail millet) – 1 cup
- Powdered jiggery – ½ cup
- Ghee – 2 tablsp
- Water – ½ cup
- Cardamom powder – 1/8 tsp
- Sliced almond – 1 tablsp
Make jaggery syrup with water and strain it. Dry roast thinai flour in the frying pan till nice aroma comes. Then add jaggery syrup and mix it well without lumps. Low the flame. Add ghee and cardamom powder and stir well till the flour separates from the pan. Pour the mixture in the greased tray and level it with a spoon or knife. Sprinkle grated almonds and cut in to cubes.
You can switch off the stove while mixing jaggery syrup with thinai flour (to avoid lumps).
