Pearl millet is unique among all millets because of it is rich in protein, polyphenols, calcium, dietary fibre. The present study was to develop and popularize bakery products using pearl millet. Pearl millet is nutritionally rich and important millet in the diet of humans. The aim of this research is to review the potential health benefits of pearl millet. Pearl millet is a gluten free cereal grain, so it is beneficial to gluten intolerant people. The popular bakery product such as biscuits was developed by fortifying wheat flour with pearl millet flour. The different sample prepared were WB 1, WB 2 and WB 3 in the ratios of (Wheat flour Bajara flour) 6040, 5050 and 4060 respectively. The physical properties and Sensory evaluation of bajara biscuit was carried out. The sensory result showed that WB 2 was rated most acceptable by a panel of judges on a nine point hedonic scale. The physical properties like width, thickness and spread factor was analysed.
