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. English: Foxtail Millet; Hindi: Kangni; Tamil: Thinai; Telugu: Korra; Kannada: Navane; Malayalam: Thina Thinai semiya upma recipe Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    |  Serves: 1 Ingredients Thinai semiya 1 cup heaped Onion 1 Green chilli 2 Carrot, beans, peas – chopped 1/2 cup Ginger, finely chopped 1 tsp Salt As needed To temper Oil 2 tsp Mustard 3/4 tsp Urad dal 2 tsp Channa dal 1 tblsp Curry leaves 1 sprig Method Keep the thinai semiya immersed in enough water for 3 mins. Drain water completely in a metal strainer. Steam cook in an idli pot for 5 minutes. Once done, invert in a plate and fluff. Keep covered. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table. Add ginger, onion, green chilli and fry till transparent. Add the finely chopped vegetables. Add little salt needed for veggies and cook covered in low flame for 2-3 mins until the veggies are done. Add required salt, the cooked sevai, and mix well for a minute. You can sprinkle with little coconut oil if you want. Notes Do not soak more than 3 minutes, otherwise it will become mushy. Also do not over cook while steaming. In step 4, after adding salt, give a quick stir and then the cooked sevai if you feel mixing of salt may be difficult. You can make simply without veggies too, but make it healthy by adding veggies. I had as such, if you want, you can have it with sugar, curd or coconut chutney.
