    In the piece you say it is a seed but treated like a grain…….GRAINS ARE SEEDS………..

    Also someplace please note you want whole millet as flour or “seed”. I got mine in Indian Store, and they have both. Because of the places I use it I have boult flour. After seeing THIS site I think I need to return and buy some seed.

    I don’t know what is what here.

    Also I do not wish to reinvent the wheel, so when usuaing flour how much water/liquid should be used so it cooks properly. Could I pan fry the flour dry and then use in something or must it be cooked with liquid to make it edible.


    Nice site! As a person withe Italian heritage I love my veggies along with anything tasty. A veggie meal is nice, but a large serving of veggies Always accompanies dead animals. Sometimes we have vegetarian meals.
