Millets are interesting. It’s kind of hard to describe the way it tastes as well. Depending on what you serve it with, it takes a lot of its flavor on that. I would say that the texture is a cross between couscous and the flavour of quinoa, with a tad bit more nuttiness to it. In this post, we’ll be talking about millet and having it as a hot breakfast cereal!
For those who do not know what millets are, they are a group of highly variable small-seeded grasses. It is widely grown around the world as cereal crops or grains for fodder and human food.
MILLETS are small-grained and belong to the grass family while having a similar nutrient content to other major cereals. Likewise, they are gluten-free so for anyone who has a gluten allergy may substitute with millets. Millets help with weight loss — due to high fiber — controls diabetes, a good source of antioxidants, reduces the risk of colon cancer, helps in both decrease high blood pressure and preventing Celiac disease.
In other ways, you may say this is like oatmeal — or in other words millet porridge.
