My attempts at making millet just never seemed to work out... I was on the verge of declaring that I didn't like millet! But this is almost a perfect way to make it. I toast the millet first in a dry pan, because I think it gives it a better flavor and texture. I was worried that the listed proportions would leave the millet soupy, so I used 3/4 cup of water to 1/4 cup of millet. It simmered for a lot longer than 15 minutes -- closer to half an hour -- but after that, it was perfect!
