Little Millet Sweet

Today is Diwali, customary to make some sweets at home. Decided to recreate one of the sweets that i had tasted at a workshop, where there was Naturopathy food served and this little millet sweet was really delicious. I hadn’t tasted any sweet, which had no milk or any ghee/oil, that’s so tasty!  As always, went ahead and asked the host if they could share the recipe! They happily acknowledged and for my surprise it was the most easy recipe i had come across. Nothing like trying it out and sharing 🙂

This recipe is dedicated to my granny, whom i lost few days back. A brilliant cook herself, her enthusiasm to learn new things was just amazing and i m blessed to have grown up with her to acquire some of her fine culinary skills and of course the “Learning never stops” quality.

And its #vegan 🙂
