Malnutrition is a burning issue in developing countries. Food plays is the major in deciding nutritional status of the population. This study was conducted with an objective to standardize nutria-dense food mix. Pulses are consumed worldwide and are desired for their high protein quality and quantity.

So Cereal and pulse ingredients were used in product development. Wheat, green gram and horse gram constituted main ingredients, additionally skim milk and drumstick leave powder were also added.
