Millet melas to be held across UP soon

Published on:

Lucknow, March 31 (IANS) The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh is now planning to hold ‘Eat Right Millet Melas’ across the state to promote millet food.

“The millet mela in Lucknow has been a success as more than 60 brands that put up stalls here reported brisk sales of food items made from coarse grain and now, we will promote millet food through more such events all across Uttar Pradesh,” said additional commissioner, Food Safety and Drug Administration Department (FSDA), S. P. Singh.

He said, “Millets have traditionally been used by Indians as they are nutritious and tasty. They will soon get popular among the fitness-conscious youth.”

Deputy chief minister Brajesh Pathak also praised the efforts of the district administration in popularising millet food and of FSDA in hosting the ‘millet mela’ among the masses.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to promote millets (Shri Anna) will ensure healthy living besides helping to solve the food problems of the world. Eat Right Millet Mela was not only about promoting food and drink in clean and hygienic conditions but also about promoting new food style,” he said.

“People have been introduced to new recipes of millet such as ‘bajra dosa’ and ‘idli’ and these will soon become popular. Millets are being used to prepare a range of dishes and soon, along with regular food, the young will take a liking to this variety too,” he added.
