Last day to enjoy millet delicacies

 Have you ever eaten pizza, pakoda, bisi bele bath, dosa, payasam and biscuits, all made of millet? If not, head for the two-day millet mela that offers millet products, recipes and much more.

The exhibition ends on Sunday at 9 pm.
Organised by the Green Path Organic State in Malleswaram, the fair is drawing many a health freak.

There are two food courts offering a variety of tasty and nutritious eatables made of millet. Yogish Appajaiah, an organiser, said maida, refined sugar, oil and salt were not used in making these food products.

The event is part of a series of exhibitions to promote organic food.
