Poets (and a Prime Minister) have sung the praises of this ancient whole grain. Tune in as Vikram Doctor traces the path of ragi, the humble finger millet, from its roots as a traditional weaning food, rich in calcium and iron, to its promising comeback as a diabetic friendly, low-glycemic grain. With its hearty, earthy texture, Ragi may be the next superfood for health and taste-conscious modern India.
If you have an adventurous palate, join Vikram Doctor every fortnight as he indulges in his appetite for the stories of food. Taste the origins, legends and practical magic of ingredients and recipes that range from the everyday to the extraordinary.
Through ancestral kitchens, gourmet restaurants, exotic vegetable farms, modern agriculturists, heirloom aficionados… One of India’s most respected food writers has been there, eaten that and knows that there is no love more sincere than the love of food.
