Have you heard of Little Millet? It is a type of cereal that is known to be very resilient. This means that it can survive through tough times like waterlogging and drought, making it an eco-friendly choice.

Little Millet is available in both polished and unpolished varieties and has a unique nutty flavour. Farmers love to grow Little Millet because it doesn't take long to grow and is resistant to pests. In Indian cuisine, Little Millet is known as "Samai" in Tamil and is a popular substitute for rice due to its high nutritional value. If you want to add a healthy and tasty grain to your diet, you can buy Little Millet online today from Bio Basics, a healthy and delicious addition to your diet.

The Story

Bio Basics sources its Organic Little Millet rice from two certified organic farmer collectives in Tamil Nadu: one in Harur and the other in Pudukkottai. The millet undergoes cleaning, sun drying, and hulling at the collectives' milling facility without polishing, preserving its bran for maximum nutrition. The unpolished Little Millet rice from Bio Basics is beige-brown in colour, retaining its natural goodness. Buy Little Millet online from Bio Basics for a nutritious addition to your meals.

How to Cook

  • Wash the Millet: Before cooking, rinse the millet under cold water to clean it.
  • Toast the Millet (Optional): If you want to boost the flavour, you can toast the millet in a pan over medium heat for a few minutes until it smells nice and turns slightly golden.
  • Boil the Water: Put 2 cups of water or vegetable broth in a pot and bring it to a boil.
  • Add the Millet: Once the water is boiling, add the rinsed millet to the pot. If you toasted it, add it now too.
  • Season (Optional): If you want, add a bit of salt to taste. You can also throw in some herbs or spices if you like.
  • Simmer: Turn the heat down to low, cover the pot with a lid, and let the millet simmer for about 15-20 minutes. It's done when the water is absorbed and the millet is soft.
  • Rest and Fluff: Take the pot off the heat and let it sit for a few minutes with the lid on. Then, fluff up the millet with a fork to separate the grains.
  • Serve: Your cooked Organic Little Millet is ready to eat! You can have it as a side dish, use it in stir-fries or salads, or however else you like.
