How to cook millet so that it is crumbly and not bitter: there is an important point
Millet is a very useful, tasty and budget-friendly cereal that can be boiled with milk or water, and served with salads, meatballs, scrambled eggs or cutlets.
Food blogger Elena Nikolaevna(olena_mykolaivna56) on her Instagram page told what to do with millet before cooking, so it would not be bitter and would be crumbly.
The most important reason why the product begins to be bitter is that the grain of the porridge includes bitter vegetable oils. And in order 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 in this form for 3 minutes. After this, you should drain the water and repeat these steps two more times. After this, you can move on to cooking in your usual way.
In addition, experienced hostesses assure that if you, for example, cook millet in water, it is equally important to observe the proportions. Approximate ratio: 1 glass of groats\4 glass of water. Millet should be poured into the boiling water and cook on low heat under a lid for about 20 minutes.
