Little Millet Fried Rice

January 21, 2019

Wow, how good does this taste.... The crunchy and juicy vegetables, their fresh flavors transports this dish to the next level, since the millets don't have their own smell, they smoothly gel with the rest of the ingredients, making you want more. It is surprisingly light, a distinct departure from a typical fried rice. I would guess you could have twice as much of this dish and yet feel you could have had some more.

I have used a mix of red bell pepper, zucchini and broccoli. Feel free to use whatever vegetables you have at home.
Please feel free to add more chilli sauce if you like your food spicy.


Little Millet                   1/2 cup
Water                             1 cup
Oil                                   1 tbsp
Onion                             1 sliced
Veggies                          1 cup cubed
                                        (bell pepper, zucchini, broccoli)
Garlic                             1 tsp finely chopped
Ginger                            1 tsp grated
Green Chilli sauce       2 tsp
Soy sauce                       2 tsp
Vinegar                           1 tsp
Salt                                   to taste
Sesame seeds                 2 tsp toasted
Cashew nuts                   1 tbsp toasted


  • Wash and soak Little Millet for 5-6 hours.

  • Cook Little Millet in cup water with a pinch of salt. Once done fluff it with a fork.

  • Each grain will separate.

  • Add all the vegetable and stir fry for a couple of minutes so that the vegetables soften a bit.

  • Now add chili sauce, soy sauce, salt and vinegar.

  • Tip in the cooked Little Millet.

  • Mix lightly.

  • Taste and adjust seasoning.

  • Serve hot.
