210 gm (1 cup) of any millet, such as ragi
2 tbsp sugar
500 ml (2 cups) apple juice
100 gm (½ cup) sesame seeds
100 gm (½ cup) pumpkin seeds
100 gm (¾ cup) chopped dried apricots
30 gm puffed rice
20 gm coconut flour
80 ml (N cup) lime juice
60 ml (¼ cup) honey
2 tbsp cocoa powder
100 gm icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Add washed millet, sugar and apple juice in a saucepan.
Bring to boil over medium-high heat, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes until tender.
Cool the mixture for 15-20 minutes and then refrigerate until cold.
Roast the sesame and pumpkin seeds on a pan, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes or until just golden.
Cool and grind to a fine powder.
Mix in a large bowl the apricots, puffed rice, ground seeds, cooled millet, coconut flour and lime juice.
Heat the honey in a small saucepan, and pour the hot syrup over the apricot mixture and mix.
Using wet hands, blend the mix, and set aside for a few minutes.
To make the dusting, mix the icing sugar and cocoa powder in a shallow bowl. Then shape the mix into rounds about the size of golf balls. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Health tip: Apricots promote gut health. Millets are rich in minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and selenium and also in essential vitamins such as folate.
