Steps to prepare Brukina.

  • Pour the millet into a sizeable pan.
  • Wash it and soak it overnight.
  • Drain the water out of the soaked millet.
  • Grind it into a rough or coarse texture. You can use a blender or take it to a mill near you.
  • Take a cup and fetch the millet into the sieve and use your hands to roll vigorously over them until they form tiny balls.
  • Pour water in a cooking pot and place it on your stove or coal pot over high heat.
  • As the water gets heated, pour the tiny millet balls into the colander and place it as the lid on your cooking pot.
  • Use some of the millet with water to form a thick paste
  • Use the thick paste to plaster around the colander and cooking pot to prevent the vapour from escaping.
  • Cover the colander tightly and allow the vapour from the hot water to soften it.
  • Turn it from time to time to make sure it’s uniformly cooked.
  • When the millet balls become soft and well cooked, pour it into a basin and allow it to cool down.
  • After cooling, pour fresh milk and mix them thoroughly.
  • Add sugar to taste.
  • Add some ice cubes to make it chilled
  • Stir and serve whiles cold.


Brukina needs not to be served with any other meal. It is a complete meal on its own. Get your stuff together and make yourself this awesome beverage.
