Millet is the small, yellow or white grain (the color of the shells can vary from white, red, yellow, brown to black) of a grain that was eaten by humans thousands of years ago. In the Netherlands this is usually feather millet, or millet for short, but there are at least 6 other types of millet in the world.

Millet can be roughly divided into 2 types:

Small millets: these are peeled because they have an indigestible skin.

Foxtail millet (en), millet spray or bird millet (nl), Setaria italica (L), thinai / korralu / navane / kang / rala (India)

Storage Advice

Keep in a cool, dark and dry place. After opening, transfer the contents to an airtight container.


Simply put, you use millet as you use rice. So you can simply cook millet, steam it, make risotto or pilav, (semi-) ground it into flour for baking (often in combination with other types of flour) or to make (semolina) porridge or other desserts. Millet is also soaked and only then ground into slurry to bake pancakes. You can also roast millet into a kind of small popcorn or use it as couscous or bulgur. In India, millet is often prepared in a pressure cooker, not so much to save time, but for an extra fluffy result. Loosen the kernels after cooking, a bit like with couscous, to prevent them from clumping together. The different types of millet taste about the same (a little grainy and a little bitter) and can all be prepared in the same way.
