Gluten-free recipes: Herbed Millet Stew

More

In the third part of a week-long series, we bring you a recipe from Is Wheat Killing You? by renowned clinical nutritionist Ishi Khosla.

Herbed Millet Stew

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

1/2 cup millet grains (bajra/ragi)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 small onion, finely chopped
5 small garlic pods, kept unpeeled
2 tsp dried mint leaves
1 1/2 cups water

Method

Place all ingredients in a medium-sized pan with 1 1/2 cups of water over high heat and bring to a boil.

Cover pan, reduce heat to low and cook for about 30 minutes, till millet grains have absorbed all the moisture and are tender. It's a good idea to check it after 20 minutes, as sometimes the millet cooks faster.
