This was really good! I did not have time to soak the millet and it still worked out just fine (the texture had a little bit more of a bite, but that didn't bother us at all). I added the curry powder, cumin and millet to the onions and garlic and cooked for a minute or so before adding the water. Next time I will use ghee instead of olive oil and add a little cayenne. Thanks for a delicious recipe!! Instead of adding 1 tsp. of salt, I just added it to taste.


Great, simple recipe. I used only 2 cups of water and that was enough (maybe too much water) to cook the millet through. No soaking necessary. Toasted the millet with the onion. Super easy side dish!

This was a very good and interesting recipe for millet. I didn`t soak the millet, maybe this step depends on millet, but mine didn`t need it. Tasty, this recipe makes a great breakfast.
