Thinai Kozhukattai Recipe - Foxtail Millet Kozhukattai Recipe


Foxtail millet / Thinai is my favorite millet. I love varagu too. Because these millets can be made into anything and they taste just great. I never miss my rice when i eat them, because these both taste like rice. Specially this kozhukattai tasted like my mom's chambara kozhukattai. I have already posted a kuthiraivali tomato upma. This is my another addition to my millet list.
