Curried Millet with Greens

Happy first day of summer!  I don’t know where you guys all live, but here – the weather is sub par to normal “Summer” weather!   I had a few hours off yesterday and was feeling cold to the bone – I wanted something creamy, filling, thick and with a spicy kick!

DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté onion & garlic in oil
  • Add in curry powder and millet (I find toasting the curry powder and millet adds to the flavour).
  • Add in the rest of the ingredients (except greens)

  • Simmer on medium low for 30 – 40 mins or until millet has softened
  • Taste – you may need to add in more fish sauce and or sugar – depending on your taste buds
  • Final step – add in greens just before serving!

NOTES

  • You may need to add extra water/broth  - depending on how thick you would like it.  It thickened up overnight!  
  • I say add fish sauce and sugar to taste because everyone likes their flavours different – I am a huge fan of the salty – so it may be too salty for other’s taste buds!!
  • All curries taste different and have different spice levels – so be sure to do lots of taste testing!

 

Hope you enjoyed this recipe!  I know I’m looking forward to the left overs!
