Cereals are the major source of protein in the Indian diet. In recent years, due to declining preference the consumption of cereals is decreasing in spite of increasing output. Therefore, the country needs to further increase the production and encourage the intake of pulses in order to meet the nutritional requirements of the population, specifically in terms of protein consumption.
