Millets are now gaining fast recognition and finding their rightful place a s a healthy grain and a good substitute for many dishes where rice is the main ingredient.
The cultivation of millets and the earnings of farmers also depend on the consumption especially from the city dwellers and upscale consumers .Thankfully this is gaining momentum and its heartening to see several corp orates supporting boutique eat outs with millet based food themes . While the village style is no less popular it is these special boutique restaurants that are bringing increased awareness of the health and nutrition profile of the humble millet to an upscale consumer.
Ironical as it may seem the increased dip in health and life styles is the main culprit or in this case also a boon to the millet growers as diabetes and other lifestyle diseases have crippled many all over the world, the humble millet is now seen as a good alternative.
Like any healthy alternative one needs to discuss with your caregiver before you completely adopt an all millet diet as it may not be suitable for all health types, a measure of moderation is necessary .
