Abstract

“Ragi flour can be used to formulate nutritionally enriched dumpling incorporated with herbs. The ragi flour was incorporated in the recipe to replace other common flour. Nutritionally enriched dumpling was prepared by adding ragi flour (200 g), corn flour (200 g), Dehydrated Carrot powder (20 g), Dehydrated pea powder (20 g), Eryngium foetidum powder (10 g), Rumex acetosa powder (20 g), Centella Asiatica powder (20 g) and salt (a pinch). The objective of this research was to find out the awareness between consumers about Ragi flour and herbs containing dumpling. The result of the study reveals that majority of the respondents were aware of the nutritional value of finger millet and who were suffering from diabetics patients rarely added finger millet to their diets. This study also explored that composite ingredients of dumpling were more acceptable with respect to mentioned sensorial quality parameters with increased nutritional value. Sensory (appearance, color, flavour, texture, taste, and overall acceptability) evaluation revealed panelists members. The nutritional value of dumpling can be good for growing children.
