Millet bread has been prepared at IIMR by replacing 50% wheat in bread with pearl millet, finger millet, or foxtail millet flour of varied proportions and adding superior quality yeast, trans-free fat, salt, and sugar.
The dough is proofed and then baked in the oven to get bread. Round balls of the dough are made and baked to get a bun
