Abstract: This research was designed to develop a nourishing Panjiri. Black wheat is high in iron and fiber, finger millet is high in calcium and ashwagandha powder is high in fiber and antioxidant. Wheat flour, black wheat flour, fin to increase the consumption of micronutrients, exploring the potential for value addition to traditional items like Panjiri, energy bars, and biscuits may be a preferable choice. Finger millet flour, fox nut and ashwagandha powder were mixed in the ratio of 26:40:20:10:4 (T1), 15:45:25:10:5 (T2), 4:50:30:10:6 (T3) and 90:10 wheat flour, fox nut (Control). Four treatments were prepared with varying ratios of the ingredients, with T0 as the control and T1, T2, and T3 as the treatments. A hedonic scale with nine points was used for sensory analysis. The results revealed that T2 had the highest score for colour, texture, taste, and overall acceptabilitySensory analysis indicated that value added Panjiri (T2) were liked very much by the panelists. The nutritional composition of the best product T2 increased with the incorporation of black wheat flour, finger millet flour, ashwagandha powder, foxnut in Panjiri Ash content was discovered to be 1.3 g/100 and 2.31 percent respectively. 17.1 g of protein, 9.24 g of fat, 5.55 g of fiber, 70.05 g of carbohydrates, 11.77 mg of iron, and 102 mg of calcium, Antioxidant- 62.33% and Energy 432 (kcal) make up this serving. The cost of the Panjiri T0 (18.4 Rs.), T1 (23.68 Rs.), T2 (24.84 Rs.) and T3 (26 Rs.). Panjiri suggested for all age groups because it strengthens immune, maintain blood sugar level, high blood pressure.
