Northeast African Millet Patties


1 cup millet

2 cups water

3/4 cup tahini or nut butter

1 small onion, finely diced

1 1/2 teaspoons celery seed

2 tablespoons tamari (soy) sauce, or to taste


  • Rinse the millet and soak in the water at room temperature for 6 hours or overnight
  • Bring the water and millet to a boil, the quickly turn down the heat to low and cover. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Remove from heat, fluff with a fork, and let sit uncovered for a few minutes to cool down.
  • Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Form into patties and fry over medium heat in a lightly oiled pan for a few minutes on each side until brown. Serve as is or with condiments or chutneys.
  • Alternatively, the millet may be served when warm without frying. It’s delicious this way as well.
