How to cook millet
Add ½ cup of millet to 1½ cups of water or stock, bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 25mins. If you want the millet to have a more creamy consistency, stir it frequently whilst cooking adding a little water every now and then.
To enhance the flavour of your dish you can lightly roast the millet in a dry saucepan over medium heat until they are golden in colour prior to cooking as above.
Simple ways to include more millet in your diet
- Make millet porridge for breakfast and top it with your favourite fresh fruit or berries
- Use puffed millet or lightly toasted millet to sprinkle over your cereal
- Use millet flour in when making flatbread or muffins
- Next time you are looking for an alternative to potatoes or rice, make a nutritious side dish with millet or millet couscous
- Add cooked millet to your favourite soup or stew.

It is very nice. I make morning porridge from millet. It is so nutritious and so tasty. There is very good tip to take the bitter taste away from it. Soak it overnight. Strain it. Add fresh water in saucepan, bring it to the boil and strain it, pour in fresh water, bring it to the boil and strain it. Do it like that for 3 times. Then make porridge as you would make normal porridge with proportion: for ½ cup of millet add to 1 cup of water, bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 25mins. If you want the millet to have a more creamy consistency, stir it frequently whilst cooking adding a little water every now and then if needed. Add some brown sugar, vanilla and salt to taste. It is worth the effort!! Soooo delicious!
