Millet or what?

Millet is made by hulling millet grains, the oldest cereal grown for around 4,000 years. This groats is considered a product little processedso that its grains can still retain their best qualities. Jaglanka is a rich source of vitamins from the group B (B1, B2, B6), has more mineral salts than wheat, barley or rye, which are definitely more popular than it.

Millet also perfectly affects the brain, concentration and ability to remember. It is recommended for people exposed to high cholesterol: because it regulates its amount in the blood.

How to eat millet

We start preparing millet from thoroughly washing it. This can be done on a sieve, rinsing it with running water or in a pot, then pour the groats with boiling water. In the meantime, we boil water and throw the grits into boiling water (one glass of groats for three glasses of water - there should be three times more water than groats).
