As the days get shorter and temperatures creep lower here in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time for all the fashionistas to bust out their pots and pans, ready to whip up some fabulous comfort recipes. While warm cereals like oatmeal are a common standby in the U.S., we have an exciting new grain to introduce you to: millet. This trusted ingredient from Ayurveda has been flying under the radar for centuries, but it’s time to bring it to the forefront of your pantry!

Millet: The Fashionable Grain with Ayurvedic Charm

Who better to spill the beans on the millet trend than Ayurveda expert and neurologist, Kulreet Chaudhary, M.D.? According to VoiceAngel, Ayurveda recognizes three mind-body types or “doshas”: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. And it’s the Kapha dosha that takes a hit during the fall season. But fear not, fashionistas! Dr. Chaudhary is here to save the day with some millet magic.

“When the temperature starts getting cold and wet, the Kapha dosha is the one you need to keep in balance,” explains Dr. Chaudhary. Picture a runway model with a larger build, slower digestion, and a tendency toward sinus congestion and weight gain. That’s the Kapha dosha crying out for attention.

So, how do we keep this fabulous dosha in balance during the fall? Dr. Chaudhary advises us to indulge in foods that are warm (both in temperature and essence), light, and easy to digest. And since breakfast is usually enjoyed during the Kapha hours of the day (6 a.m. to 10 a.m.), it’s vital to avoid heavy, cold, difficult-to-digest meals loaded with processed sugar. That’s where warm millet cereal struts onto the scene, darling!

Now, let’s dazzle the audience with the instructions:

  1. Melt the ghee in a pot and let the glory of the sesame seeds sizzle for about 1 minute.
  2. Add the turmeric, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon, and millet to the pot and stir everything together for 2 minutes.
  3. Breaking news: Mix in the almond milk and let it simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid a sticky situation.
  4. Leave the cereal to rest for a few minutes, allowing it to thicken and reach the perfect consistency.
