Millet Scones / Kodo Millet Scones / Thinai Scones

kodo millet scones

Scones are quick bread, my twist on this scones is that I have used Thinai / Kodo millet.

Thinai / Kodo millet is rich in iron, magnesium and calcium. They are known to reduce bad cholesterol and triglycerides and increase the good cholesterol.
