What I have made is an upma, or porridge with red millet seeds. With millet, you definitely need to do some prep work - soaking for 8 hours is a must prior to cooking.
- 1/2 cup of red millet (ragi)
- 1/2 cup of assorted greens
- 1/2 capsicum
- 1/2 tomato
- 2 cloves of fresh/green garlic
- 1 green chilli
- 1/4 onion
- 5-10 curry leaves
- Tablespoon of oil
Prep Work: Soak the millet overnight in two cups of water. Drain the water upon waking and replace with fresh clean water. I'd soaked mine along with some chick pea.
Chop the onion, chillies and garlic fine. I've used fresh green garlic - Dried is fine too. With the fresh green one, you can also use the entire green stalk which is also flavorful.
Add the millet to the frying pan. Mix well for a minute.
Turn off the gas. Lay aside for a minute.Then add the capsicum, tomatoes and greens so they are still mostly raw. Mix well.
