 Thinai Dosai, Thinai Arisi Is a millet varitey, in ancient(Puraana) Stories i heard about this thinai arisi urundi a lot, their they expalined Thinai arisi urundai was made out of home made ghee, garden honey and home made thinai arisi maavu, these maavu urunadi are the king food of ancient generation..

In my early days i saw this thinai is used to feed LOVE BIRDS, Later after starting the millet hunt i found that thinai was cleaned, they remove the outer layer and called it as thinai arisi, Adding thinai in Dosai is really a new thing to me… it taste good as like the normal arisi dosai..
