Millet Vegetable Fried Rice

One of the goodies that we had given to some of our blogger buddies from North was a packet of Millets, and Thinnai. The immediate prompt question that came across was for recipes to include these super grains in  day to day cooking. That is when I decided to choose this as my theme for Choose one ingredient and cook three dishes. First dish with millets is a simple flavorful vegetable rice

3 cups cooked Millet
      1/4 cup minced Spring Onions
                                     1/4 cup Green Beans 
                                          1/4 cup Carrots 
                                    1 tbsp Garlic, minced 
                            1 tbsp Ginger, peeled and minced 
                                  Pepper and Salt - to taste 
                                            Oil for sauté
Cook the millets and keep it separately
In a wok, heat oil and stir in the garlic and ginger pieces
Add salt followed by finely chopped vegetables
When they are sautéed add a dash of soy sauce and mix well
Adjust Pepper and Salt according to your taste
Take it off fire and add the millets
Stir well and garnish with some spring onions
