    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.  -  13 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  22 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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.  -  23 May 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
