Spicy Millet

I have a lot of millet that I have neglected to use in recipes. So over the next week or two I hope to recify this. Here is the first recipe which I have done before and usually serve with salad. This recipe isn't very spicy, just a flavourful hint. You can of course add more.

Spicy Millet (to serve 2-3)

1/2 tbsp rapeseed oil
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp tumeric

1/2 onion
1/2 red pepper
1 carrot
4oz millet grain
1/2 litre vegetable stock
4 oz frozen peas

1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried mint (can use fresh in the summer)

Chop the onion and pepper and grate the carrot. Put the oil, cumin and tumeric in a pan and heat until warm, add the chopped onion and pepper. Stir and add hot water to cover and cook for 5 mins on a moderate heat with lid on. Make up the vegetable stock and add to the pan with the millet grain. Bring to boil, the cover and simmer for 20 mins. Add the peas and grated carrot and cook for a further 5-10 mins, stiring as necessary. Stir in the lemon juice and mint. Serve with salad
