Preparation

  1. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the oil and add the millet and toast on medium low heat for 5 minutes, until the grains are a pale toffee color. Set the millet aside to cool.
  2. Take about 1/4 cup of the almond milk and place with the cashew nuts in a blender and blend into a smooth paste.
  3. Place the millet, cashew nut paste, remaining almond milk, sugar, bruised cardamoms in a slow cooker and cook for 4 hours on high, stirring occasionally if needed.
  4. Turn off the heat, cool slightly and serve with chopped pistachios and chopped candied oranges. The candied oranges are very optional, I just happened to have them around.
