Thinai Idiyappam Recipe / Foxtail Millet Idiyappam Recipe

Idiyappam is one of my family favourite. Hubby loves it for breakfast, when i make chicken curry or mutton dish. I dont know how much idiyappam he devours..Since he loves idiyappam, i try to make it healthy by adding ragi, wheat in them. This is one variation which i made couple days back by adding thinai flour in it and it was yum...
