Millet is an Asian grain. Its technical name is "proso," and that's the
name you'll find on millet purchased in U.S. stores. Millet looks like
bright yellow mustard seeds, but when cooked, the seeds explode into pale
yellow puffs. When fresh, it tastes mildly sweet with a very subtle
alkaline aftertaste, says R. Wood.
