How to puff millet?

Have you experimented with puffing your own millet? If so, can you please tell me how you did it and any suggestions or tips on the most efficient way to do this at home?

Thanks!

I just found this resource:

It seems that millet is unlike corn in that it must be fully cooked before being puffed. So you'd need to soak, steam, and thoroughly dry the millet grains before frying them in hot oil to puff them up.

It sounds like a cool project -- let us know if you try!
