Foxtail Millet Flour Fruit Custard / Thinai Fruit Custard

During summer time, we  all prepare fruit custards. We buy the custard powder and use it. Why not use thinai instead of custard powder? This idea was suggested by my mother. I tried it and it came out really well.
Thinai Custard is a very good way to make kids take millets disguisedly.
