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 Cup All Purpose Flour
Bunch Fresh Coriander (Handful)
Bunch Fresh Chives (Handful)
4 Garlic Cloves
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
