Dry roasting the millet

Adding ingredients and boiling
1. Add coconut milk, water, garlic, green onion, ginger, and salt.
2. Bring to a soft boil.
3. Reduce heat to low and cover.
Final cooking and resting
1. Allow to cook for 12-17 minutes or until millet has cooked and water is absorbed.
2. Remove from heat for 5 minutes.
3. Add kidney beans and use a fork to fluff millet and mix in beans.
Alternative method
