Cooking with Millets

Millets are rich in nutrition and can address many lifestyle diseases. Millets are hardy and grow well in dry zones as rain-fed crops, under marginal conditions of soil fertility and moisture and are stable yielders. Since millets do not have gluten (gelatinous character), the cooking with millets is not the same as wheat-based products. It requires some skill and training to make recipes with millets. Therefore, there is a need for training to cook the millet based recipes which are being organised at the IIMR, Hyderabad.

ICAR-IIMR have developed the expertise over the past few years to make popular recipes with millets like dosa, idly, upma, bisibele bath, biscuits, cakes and many more related items. This event, focus on training the individuals as well as housewives and other stakeholders so as to popularize the millets.
