Instructions
  1. Rinse the millets in water, place it in a container that will fit in the pressure cooker and add 1 3/4 cup of water to it.
  2. Pressure cook for 2 whistles and on sim for 5-7 minutes. Once the cooker is cool enough to open, remove the millets, mash with a spoon and keep aside.
  3. To the mashed millets, add all other ingredients and mix well with fingertips.
  4. If you want to make this gluten free, omit breadcrumbs and use 2 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed instead.
  5. Divide this into 6-8 balls and flatten on your palm to make patties as shown in the photos and keep in one layer on a plate.
  6. At this stage you could cover the plate with cling film and refrigerate for few hours until you need to make them.
  7. Grease a non stick tava, once moderately hot, place the patties in one layer. Once the bottom side turns golden brown, turn to the other side and cook for another 5 minutes until crisp and golden.
  8. Serve immediately with ketchup, chutney or marinara sauce.
