I keep dehulled millet in my pantry as part of my grains. It’s goes well in salads and soups. These fritters are a great snack or for a light meal. They have lots of texture and are packed with flavor.


What You’ll Need - Makes 10 - 12 Fritters

  • 1 Cup Uncooked Millet

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour

  • Bunch Fresh Coriander (Handful)

  • Bunch Fresh Chives (Handful)

  • 4 Garlic Cloves

  • ½ Onion

  • 2 Tsp Paprika

  • Salt & Pepper


Prep - 30Minutes

  • Cook the millet in a large pot with 4 cups of water. You’ll know it’s cooked once it’s soft. Takes about 15 minutes

  • Strain any residue water from the cooked millet through a strainer

  • Spread the millet evenly on a flat plate to cool completely.

  • Finely dice the onion and garlic

  • Chop the Coriander and chives.

  • Once the millet is cooked, transfer into a mixing bowl and add the garlic, onions, Coriander and chives.

  • Combine and season with paprika, salt and pepper.

  • Break the egg into the mixture and combine.

  • Divide the mixture into 10 - 12 equal parts and mold into flat patties while coating them in flour.


Let’s Get Cooking - 10 Minutes

  • Heat a cup of cooking oil in a frying pan. I like to use coconut oil for this but vegetable oil is perfectly fine.

  • Gently place the Fritters into the pan and fry until golden brown on each side.

  • Serve with a sauce of your choice
