I found this recipe several years ago on one of vegetarian forum

We need:

  • 2 cups millet
  • water
  •  about 2 lb potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • little wholemeal flour (you can also use bread crumbs)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oil

Rinse millet in cold water (using mesh strainer). Put into a pot, pour 4 cups water and cook slowly until grain will be soft and you will not see water in a pot. Boil the potatoes and puree, chop onions and saute. Combine all ingredients together, add a little oil, salt and pepper. Shape into patties and coat in flour. Bake at 350 F until golden brown on both sides. Of course you can fry, add the herbs and spices – whatever You like.

Millet is one of the healthiest and oldest grain in the world. Came from Asia 7000 years ago.

This is about what Paul Pitchfrod wrote about millet in his book “Healing with whole foods”:

“Healing properties:

Cooling thermal nature; sweet and salty flavor, diuretic; strengthens the kidney; beneficial to stomach and spleen – pancreas; buildts the yin fluids; moistness dryness; alkalizing – balances over-acid conditions; sweetens breath by retarding bacterial growths in mouth; high amino acid (protein) profile and rich silicon content; helps prevent miscarriage; anti – fungal; one of the best grains for those with Candida albicans overgrowth.

Also useful for diarrhea (roast millet before cooking), vomiting (millet soup or congee), indigestion, and diabetes. Soothes morning sickness – eat millet soup or congee regularly. Millet is known as “queen of the grains.” Due to its alkali – forming nature millet is often cooked with little or no salt. Sprouted millet can be used for digestive stagnation caused by undigested starch , for checking lactation, and other applications similar to sprouted .

Caution: millet is not recommended for those with signs  of very weak digestive functions such a consistently watery stools.

Cooked millet:

  • 1 cup millet, soaked
  • 3 cups water
  • A few grains sea salt

Place millet and salt in a pot of water. Cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 30 minuter or   pressure cook 20 minutes.

Variations: Toast millet in a little oil before cooking. For softer millet, add more water.”

I really recommend Paul Pitchford’s book and millet. This book will help you heal your body. There are plenty of easy and healthy recipes.
