Millet is a very healthy, tasty and satisfying cereal that can be successfully combined with bacon, cutlets, meatballs and salads. However, it often happens that when it's ready to cook, the porridge tastes unpleasantly bitter.

How to cook millet so that it does not become bitter

One of the reasons why this happens is improper preparation of the grain. Experienced housewives know that millet must be rinsed before cooking. This should be done with hot water, not cold. It is boiling water that helps to eliminate bitterness and additionally wash away debris. Rinse the millet until the water is completely clear.

Why you need to fry millet before cooking

The FoodOboz editorial team also gathered information and found out that millet can be fried in addition to being washed. They claim that this method works much better.

The fact is that millet, compared to other cereals, can be stored for only a few years, and then bitterness begins to appear. In this case, it is best to remove it by roasting.

How to cook millet correctly

When cooking millet, you should also keep in mind the following important nuances:

  • Millet should be boiled until half cooked only.
  • If you cook millet in water, it is recommended to change the water several times during the cooking process.
  • When the millet is cooked, do not rush to open the lid but rather let the cereal brew.
