This is a basic recipe on how to cook millet in an instant pot.

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Add the millet, water, garlic powder, ground cumin (if using), and salt to the instant pot, stir to combine, and close the lid.
  2. Move the venting valve to seal and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes and turn off the keep warm function.  It may take about 10 minutes to come to pressure.

  4. Stir and fluff with a fork or rice paddle.
