Foxtail Millet Flour Burfi / Thinai Maavu Burfi | Foxtail Millet / Thinai Recipes

Thinai Maavu Burfi is a tasty sweet without compromising on health.

Foxtail Millet Flour / Thinai Maavu
1 cup
Powdered Jaggery
½ cup
2 tbsp
¼ cup
Cardamom Powder
1/8 tsp
Sliced Almonds
1 tbsp

1. Grease a plate with ghee and keep it aside.
2. Heat the jaggery in a  pan with ¼ cup of water. When the jaggery dissolves completely,  switch off the stove.
3. Filter the syrup with steel filter. Again add two table spoon of water and cook till the syrup becomes sticky. Keep it aside.
4. Heat a heavy bottomed pan or non stick pan, add 1 table spoon of ghee and add foxtail millet flour. Fry it well until nice aroma comes out.
5. Then add the jaggery syrup and cardamom powder, then mix it quickly. Then add remaining 1 table spoon of ghee. Stir continuously for 2-3 mins or till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan, then switch off the flame.
6. Spread it in a greased plate and garnish with chopped nuts. Allow it to cool down and cut them into small pieces.
   Healthy and yummy  thinai maavu burfi is ready.
Note :
1. Ensure that the sugar syrup does not get too thick because the burfi would get hard.

2. I used badam to garnish. But you can use any nuts to garnish.
