What's so good about Millets

Millet is a good source of protein, fiber, key vitamins, and minerals. The potential health benefits of millet include protecting cardiovascular health, preventing the onset of diabetes, helping people achieve and maintain a healthy weight, and managing inflammation in the gut.

We have been using these since ancient times and they have multiple advantages over other crops, including less water requirement and pest resistance. They’re also able to survive in harsh environments and less fertile soil. These benefits stem from their genetic composition and physical structure — for example, its small size and hardness

Millets are a versatile ingredient that makes a good rice replacement when cooked whole.
To prepare it, just add 2 cups of water per 1 cup of raw millet. 
Remember to soak it overnight before cooking. It helps in easy digestion of millets and better nutrient absorption.
Roasting also helps in easy cooking and easy digestion.
With UN declaring 2023 as the year of millets, the awareness on these ancient grains is set to rise and so is the consumption
