Our modest attempt to demystify cooking with millets, and relearn the impact that it has on our ecology. This initiative aims to facilitate gradual incorporation of millets into our diets, as well as create a space for meaningful conversation and engagement so that we can tap into the resilience of millets while also rediscovering its taste.
