Millet is a healthy grain, rich in iron and other nutrients that our families need to stay healthy; and when combined with BBQ, the results are simply marvellous.
  • 100 g/1⁄2 cup millet
  • 300 ml/1 1⁄4 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons barbecue spice rub (with added salt)
  • 6 g/1⁄4 cup freshly chopped parsley leaves
  • 80 g/1⁄4 cup dry polenta
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Baking sheet, lined with baking parchment
  1. Wash and drain the millet well, then place in a saucepan and pour over the boiling water. Cover, lower the heat to a minimum and simmer for 12–15 minutes, until the millet soaks up all the liquid and becomes soft. Spread on a plate to cool

  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) Gas 4.

  3. Place the cooked millet in a large bowl and add the onion, garlic, spices and parsley. Knead well into a sticky dough that holds together.

  4. Form 10 cylinder-shaped croquettes, brush each with oil on all sides and roll them in the polenta. Transfer to the lined baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15–20 minutes or until golden brown. They will brown nicely if you switch on the grill/broiler mode at the end of baking.

  5. Serve while warm.
