AuthorSharmilee J


  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp ghee + extra for greasing
  • 1 tbsp pistachios (chopped finely)


  • Heat ghee in a kadai - add millet flour to it.
  • Roast in low flame for 5 mins, transfer to a plate and cool down then add coco powder to it.
  • Mix well or sieve it well,set aside.In the same pan add sugar.I used brown sugar here.
  • Add water to it let it boil in medium flame.
  • When it starts to thicken and bubble up well, check for single thread consistency.When a thin string consistency is reached immediately add the flour cocoa mixture.
  • Mix well , act quickly keep stirring to avoid lumps.In 2 mins the batter will become thick, add ghee at this stage.The mixture will be thickish like idli batter consistency.
  • Mix well and switch off.Immediately transfer to ghee greased tray.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts on it.Slightly press it.Leave it to set for 10 mins then mark pieces with a knife then carefully separate the pieces and store.Ofcourse few to enjoy instantly then store :)
  • Keeps well in room temperature itself for about a week.


  • If you miss the consistency then it may turn our hard.
  • If you add the flour before the single thread consistency then it will be like chewy halwa so keep a close¬† eye on the consistency.
  • You can sprinkle any nuts of your choice.
  • You can use white sugar if you wish to.I haven't tried with cane sugar so not sure about the result.
