Upasana Konidela explains about benefits of millets over rice
Tollywood actor Ram Charan’s wife Upasana Konidela has visited the Deccan Development Society, an NGO, in Sangareddy district and interacted with women farmers, who are cultivating millets. Food nutritionist Dr K Lakshmi said less water is needed for raising millets compared to rice. Moreover, millets are rich in fibre and good for health, she added.
Upasana has ordered 8,000 packets of millets to distribute as gifts. Eating millets will keep satiated throughout the day, Lakshmi added. Upasana said that the doctors and staff working at the Apollo Foundation will encourage the use millets.
