Although millet is no longer commonly used in the Western world, it is a highly nutritious ingredient that is worth considering.
Millet is packed with proteins, antioxidants, and vitamins, including E, B1, B2, B8, B11, and vitamin B17, which is often lacking in Western diets. Additionally, millet is a rich source of zinc, magnesium, and iron. Plus, millet is gluten free!
In Asia and Africa, millet is still widely used and is known by various names, such as Jowar or great millet. In other parts of the world, varieties like Ragi, also known as finger millet, are commonly used.
Personally, I like to use millet flakes and grind them in my food processor until they reach a millet flour consistency.
