Nutritious and tasty, millet stir fry makes a light refreshing meal. In this millet recipe, I have cooked chena millets (Proso millets) with plenty of vegetables to make a healthy vegetarian stir fry or should I call it a millet pilaf?
如果你还没有发现wonderful world of millets很快,你必须开始。的多功能性小米s, you will have fun cooking with millets. Whole millets can easily replace rice, couscous, bulgur and other grains. Millet flour is a great alternative for wheat flour. Millets are amongst the most nourishing grains. They are highly alkaline and naturally gluten free. They are easy to digest and in India, millet porridge is highly recommended for babies as well.
The chena millet I have used in this simple stir fry recipe comes from the plains of Rajasthan. I love the slightly sweet earthy flavour and the fluffy, grainy texture of this little millet. The closest cousin for texture would be couscous.
While they are the oldest grains, I wouldn’t be wrong to say that my generation completely skipped growing up on millet, which is why we also lack recipes with millets. I find it quite interesting to find old traditional millet recipes and also adapting common rice and wheat recipes with millets for a healthier alternative like in this stir fry recipe orbajreき烤肉代替普通小麦恰巴提。
