Detailed Description

Finger millet (locally known as Mandua) is one of the varieties of millet cultivated traditionally in villages in Uttarakhand under rain-fed conditions. Chappatis made from finger millet flour form the staple diet of the local people. It is also used for preparing cakes, pancakes, cookies etc.

Finger millet is a gluten-free cereal rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.

Our Finger millet has been sourced from villages in the Nayar and Ramganga catchment of Pauri Garhwal district Uttarakhand. Nayar, called Narad Ganga, according to ancient historical Hindu texts, rises in the dense forests and high meadows of Dudhatoli mountain range, whereas Ramganga, rises in the southern slopes of Dudhatoli Hills of Gairsain subdivision (Diwali Khal) is the lifeline of world-famous Corbett National Park. These rivers endowed with beautiful landscapes meander through panoramic landscapes, providing clean and mineral rich water to villages situated along their course.

Our Finger millets are grown under natural conditions by members of our women Self-Help Groups (SHGs)and collected from SHGs by our Cooperatives and subsequently processed and marketed.
