Shilpa Shetty is one of the fittest actresses in the industry, and she regularly takes to Instagram to share recipes from her own kitchen. The actress is known to have an interesting take on healthy ingredients making recipes that are healthy yet flavourful.

She also shared some health benefits of eating Jowar in place of Maida, such as the fact that it is gluten free, it aids weight loss, helps regulate bowel movements and is beneficial for diabetics. Could there really be anything more one could need from a grain?
Jowar is a wonderful grain that is primarily grown in arid regions of the country. Also known as Sorghum, Jola or Jondhalaa, the great nutritional content makes for an amazing addition to the diet.
