How To Cook Perfect Millet



1 cup raw millet
2 1/4 cups water
pinch salt 


Pour 2 1/4 cups water into a medium pot and bring water to a boil.

Meanwhile, in a large, dry skillet or saucepan, toast the raw millet over medium heat for about 5 minutes until it turns a rich golden brown and the grains become fragrant. Stir constantly, not let them burn. Then, rinse toasted millet thoroughly in water. Drain very well.

Into boiling water pour toasted millet, add salt, stir, then simmer covered for about 15 minutes (or until millet absorb most of the water) over very low heat. During simmer DON’T STIR!!! Remove from heat and allow it to sit covered for 10 minutes.

Then, take off the lid and let evaporate any possible excess water. After millet is a little bit cool off, fluff it with a fork.

Thus prepared millet can be served or stored in the refrigerator 2-3 days and used to cook delicious snacks or breakfast
