Millets are indeed superior cereals in terms of nutrition and also in terms of sustainability. They are very well in nature friendly production.
For preparing millet salad you need to rinse and discard the water of millets. Millets are very difficult to rinse ,so just need to clean the dust and rinse them in water.
Boil them in a pot along with water and salt as well.It will take around 10 minutes to cook the millets. Here we a need creamy porridge instead of fluffy cooked millets.
So rather than double the water,i have added one extra cup to get a creamy consistency which is good for making salad.So you need to stir it much frequently to avoid sticking to the pan.
After 10 minutes it will be more mussy and creamy consistency,stir frequently and off the gas.Allow it to cool.
Now add grated carrot,green chilies,onions and few pomegranates mix in millets.
Add yogurt and combine all nicely.At the end seasoning it and sprinkle few crushed pepper corns to make it more scrumptious.
