The percentage of moisture, ash, fat, crude fibre, crude protein, carbohydrate, sugar and starch was 6.9, 3.8, 6.4, 2.05, 16.2, 17.05, 2.4 and 45.5 respectively. Iron and calcium content was 13.23 mg/100g and 418.03 mg/100g, respectively. Acceptability score of food product was evall1ated by 30 pregnant women by using 9 point hedonic scale. The score for different parameters such as colour, flavour, texture, taste and general acceptability were recorded. Score for all parameter was above 6 which indicated the acceptance of the product.
