Ingredients:

3 Tbsp canola oil

Method:

In a small pot, heat 1 Tbsp canola oil, add the millet and fry for about 3 minutes until slightly golden. Add 2 cups of water, bring to the boil, remove from the heat and set aside for 1 hour. Heat the remaining oil in a heavy pan, add the cumin seeds and fry for 10 seconds. Add the onion and fry until browned. Add the green beans and fry for about three minutes. Add the tomato, salt, cayenne, lemon juice and the millet including the soaking liquid. Stir well, bring to the boil and simmer on low heat for 40 minutes.
