Foxtailmillet Ladoo

 I had posted many recipes from this small grain on my blog . I tried this ladoo for first time.
 Foxtail millet is the second most widely planted species of millet. Its other names include Italian millet , German millet , Chinese millet and Hungarian millet. It is the oldest millet cultivated dating sixth millennium BC.
 As it is rich in fiber content helps in preventing constipation.We must include this wonderful grain at least once in a month.
 It was crunchy as I used the whole grain. It is easy to make only with three ingredients.

Requirements :
Foxtail millet – 1 cup
Brown sugar – ½ cup
Cardamom powder – ¼ tsp

Method :

Dry roast the foxtail millet till the aroma comes. Take off from flame.

Mix the brown sugar with quarter cup of water and bring to boil.

When the syrup reaches one string consistency take off from flame and add the roasted grain and cardamom powder .

Mix well and let it cool till we can hold the mixture in hand.

Make into small round ladoos.
Foxtail millet ladoos are ready to serve.
