How to cook millet, so that it is crumbly and not bitter: there is one important point
Millet is a very healthy, tasty, and budget-friendly cereal that can be cooked with milk or water and served with salads, meatballs, bacon, or cutlets.
The main reason why the product starts to taste bitter is that the grains of porridge contain bitter vegetable oils. To avoid unpleasant moments, millet must be properly prepared for cooking.
According to the cook, the groats should be poured with boiling water, stirred and left for 3 minutes. After that, you should drain the water and repeat these steps two more times. After that, you can proceed to cooking in your usual way.
