It made its way to India thousands of years ago through early agricultural practices and trade routes, and it has since been cultivated and integrated into traditional Indian diets. In Karnataka, Kodo Millet is widely grown due to the region's suitable climatic conditions and soil types, making it a staple crop. We source our Kodo millets from Karnataka.
