Putting Millets on the Food Map
Millets, the ancient grain family of Jowar, Bajra and ragi, are to come back into India’s foodscape. Millets are not new to India’s culture or kitchens. But in a country obsessed with rice, wheat and pulses, they aren’t widely produced or consumed.
Will that now change? What is up with farmers who are already growing millets? Do they have enough incentives? Can the millets make India more food secure? Can they help fight malnutrition and climate change at once?
In this episode, host Sneha Richhariya talks to millet farmers in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. This episode also features a conversation with Ms. Salome Yesudas, who has worked extensively on millets and other indigenous crops.
