Preparation Time

50 minutes


1 cup millet or sorghum grains

Sugar or honey 

Milk or yoghurt 

4 cups water



  • Rinse the millet or sorghum grains thoroughly in cold water to remove any impurities.
  • Drain the grains.
  • Add the millet or sorghum grains and water in a large pot.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce the heat and allow it to simmer. 
  • Stir the mixture occasionally to prevent sticking or burning.
  • Continue cooking and stirring for about 45 minutes. The grains should become tender and start breaking down, creating a thick, porridge-like consistency.
  • Add salt to taste. 
  • If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can add sugar or honey at this point. 
  • Serve hot.
