Rediscover millets at Lalbagh

India has different varities of millets and is the largest producer of these foodgrains in the world. The country is apparently the top exporter of small millets which feed pet birds in American and European homes.But we are yet to completely understand the ability of millets to manage diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, fibromyalgia, backaches and other chronic diseases. This weekend offers a great opportunity to learn about the health benefits of millets and interact with nutrition, processing technology and cultivation experts at the Millets Mela. Grameena Natural, a Bangalore based shop for natural foods and earth360 Eco Ventures Private Limited from Kadiri in Andhra Pradesh are hosting this event:

from 10.00 am – 7.30 pm

on 13th to 15 April

at Dr. Marigowda Memorial Auditorium, Lalbagh

(Behind JKS Mall near Nursery Men’s Cooperative Society, Double Road entrance)

Use this chance to learn tasty and healthy millet receipes, savour delicious dishes and sweets at the exclusive Millets Food Court, comprehend why millets are missing from our mainstream, relate to the history of these robust grains and know where to buy millets regularly

The organizers say, "This is an attempt to create awareness about Jola, Sajje, Raagi, Navane, Saame, Haaraka, Baragu, Oodara. We have marginalized millets in the 65 years of independent India’s history. Let us restore millets on our farms and plates"
