  • 3 cups cooked millet I used foxtail millet
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt to taste

For tadka


  • Cook the millet and keep it aside. Leftover cooked millet can also be used.
  • To the cooked millet, add lemon juice, salt and mix it well.
  • Now, heat the pan for tadka.
  • Add oil and once it is heated well, add peanuts and let it fry for 2 minutes. If you are using roasted peanuts, you can add them at last. Else peanuts take some time to cook, so add it at the beginning.
  • Now add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, Hing, urad dal, chana dal, slitted green chili, red chili, curry leaves, and turmeric powder. Fry all the ingredients for a few minutes till they are roasted well.
  • Now add sesame seeds and let it fry for one minute and turn off the stove. Sesame seeds don't take time to cook and hence we add it at last.
  • Once the tadka is cooled down a little bit, add this to millet mixture and mix it nicely.
  • Millet lemon rice is ready to serve. It will be a good breakfast or lunch item.
