parchment paper
1 cup hulled millet, whole grain 180 g
2 cups water 500 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1 carrots, chopped 100 g
1 zucchini, chopped 130 g
2 tsp curry powder 6 g
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1 eggs size large
4 tbsp yogurt, plain, 2% 60 g
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely chopped 4 g
125 mL Tartare Sauce 1/2 cup


  1. Line one or two large baking sheet(s) with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Pour the specified amount of water into a saucepan, cover, then bring to a boil. Add the millet and a little salt. Cover and cook over very low heat about 25 min without uncovering. Remove the saucepan from the heat. The water should be completely absorbed. Should it not be, cover and simmer for a few more minutes. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile heat half of the oil in skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté until softened, about 3 min. Stir in the carrot and zucchini and cook until softened, about 3 min. Stir in the spices, a pinch of salt, and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.
  4. Transfer the millet to the bowl, add the egg, yogurt, and chopped cilantro then fold until well combined. Portion out the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet(s), forming 1-cm-thick cakes (about 3 per serving). Refrigerate cakes until chilled and firm, about 30 min. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  5. Drizzle the cakes with remaining oil and bake 25-30 min or until the edges are crispy and cakes are cooked through. Serve with the tartar sauce on the side.
