1 cup millet

1 tsp oil

1/8 tsp cayenne

3 cups boiling water

1 tsp salt

3/4 cup carrot, grated

3/4 cup onion, minced

1/2 cup parsley, minced

1/2 cup flour

1/4 cup soy flour

Oil, for frying


Place a large pot on medium heat and add oil.

When oil is hot, add millet and cayenne and stir for 2/3 minutes until millet gives off a nut-like fragrance.

Add boiling salted water and reduce heat to simmer.

Simmer, covered, for 35-40 minutes, adding vegetables 5 minutes before the end.

Add flours to millet and vegetables, mixing well to avoid lumps.

Let mixture sit for 15/20 minutes until cool enough to handle.

Heat oil about 1/8" deep in a frying pan on medium-low heat.

Form millet mixture into thick patties with hands, or press into shape with a pancake turner.

Fry for 3-4 minutes on each side or until crisp and lightly browned. Serve with soy sayce or your favourite sauce or gravy.
