Here, I have given here the recipe of Thinai Urundai (Foxtail Millet Honey Balls). It is much similar to our Maaladu, Rawa laadu but here we are going to prepare in a healthy manner. We are not going to use sugar and ghee, instead we are going to add honey to hold the thinai and make it a ball. Honey is a healthy substitute for sugar. But we can very well use the conventional method of making laddus using ghee and sugar also. We can also use palm sugar or jaggery. We can dissolve palm sugar or jaggery and add that syrup to make balls. A healthy and tasty laddu. We can give this laddu as an evening snack to our kids also!

Method:

  1. Heat a pan and dry fry the thinai  / foxtail millet. You have to fry them in low flame for about 5-7 minutes. Do not make this so brown. Add the fried thinai / foxtail millet to the mixer along with cardamom pods

  2. Grind the thinai / foxtail millet to a corase powder. We can also grind it to a smooth powder. But balls made out of coarse powder tastes better than the coarse powder. Heat ghee in a pan and add broken cashews and fry them till they are golden brown
