Lemon Rice Using Foxtail Millet Recipe

Lemon Rice Using Foxtail Millet Recipe


Millets are an amazing substitute for rice – packed with lots of nutrients such as magnesium, copper and phosphorus and dietary fibre!

Here’s @bowledoverbykari’s take on a traditional lemon rice, but made using our foxtail millet. Happy cooking!⁣



1. Soak the foxtail millets for an hour, once soaked in a pot add the water and the millets. Cover and let it cook for 20 minutes until the millets are cooked. Take a fork and fluff it and set aside.⁣

2. In a pan, heat the oil and add the peanuts and cook until the peanuts are browned.⁣

3. Add in the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, urad dal, curry leaves, turmeric and chilies and mix and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute ⁣

4. Add the onion, ginger and capsicum. Sauté until the onion is soft and translucent. ⁣

5. Add the cooked foxtail millets and salt and toss it gently until the millets turn yellow. Slowly add in the tomatoes.⁣

6. Switch off the heat and add the lemon juice. Stir to combine and adjust the seasoning as per your taste.⁣
