Among millets, thinai is one difficult millet to incorporate in everyday cooking. Its good when made as sweets, so I made thinai sweet paniyaram. Want to try sakkarai pongal and payasam later. But what about savory items? So when I got a pack of organic thinai semiya pack from Bhairavi Naturals, I was very happy that I could make something with thinai. So I made upma with this first as I wanted to make savory item. You can steam this and make payasam or mix with sugar and grated coconut as well. But I like upma. And it was very nice. Better than ragi semiya upma also healthier than the regular semiya too. So friends in Singapore you can order this organic millet sevai and all other organic millets online through Bhairavi Naturals.
