Common names of whole grains



     
Thought it fit to post the common names of the whole grains we use at home (since I've been going on and on about them). This info is widely available and sourced from the 'Nutritive Value of Indian Foods' as well as the internet. You can view relevant images on Google search - just type in any of these names. These grains are best if grown organically. They literally require less water for cultivation and you'd be doing the Earth a big favour if you demand chemical free foods. Visit your local organic store for more info.

I clicked the first 4 pics of millets...... the rest, courtesy Google Images.
