Millets (cereal crops) are seed grasses that grow in semi arid tropical areas of Asia and Africa. Initially used as animal fodder, it gradually became a popular food grain worldwide. Millets are annual warm-weather cereals with small grains attached to grass. Although the broader term is millet, there are various types of millets that you can find. Jowar, Bajra, Ragi etc., are some of the most common millets that people use, especially in India.
People began to consume only gluten-free items after a significant shift in food culture. After that critical transformation, millets started to receive the attention they deserved, and have gradually evolved into a food staple in most households, alongside rice and wheat.
