To create awareness and increase its consumption, United Nations, at the behest of the Government of India, has declared 2023 the International Year of Millets. The ancient crops, the origins of which are traced back to Indus Valley Civilization as early as 3000 BC, have even been mentioned in various ancient texts including Yajurveda. Adding millets in your daily diet can work wonders for your health and prevent against many chronic diseases.
