Millet Fried Rice Recipe is a twist on the classic Asian flavored fried rice, we have added foxtail millet instead of rice and stir fried with loads of vegetables to keep the same flavor intact. This goes well with gravies and many other Sichuan style dishes.

Chinese typically use long grained rice for their preparation of rice dishes. But by using foxtail millet in your everyday cooking it helps to increase dietary fiber and it is also considered as a gluten free product.

Serve the Millet Fried Rice Recipe along with Chicken Manchurian Recipe (Gravy) and Vegetable Spring Rolls Recipe to make it a complete meal.
