Amaranth (rajgira) is derived from the Greek word meaning everlasting. Indeed, amaranth has been a continuous, strong presence in diets across the world since thousands of years. There is evidence of amaranth being used in UP in India and, later on, by the Aztecs in the 15th and 16th centuries in South America. Amaranth boasts a super healthy nutrition profile packed with protein, manganese, and amino acids.
Graminway’s Gluten Free Amaranth Cheela Mix is made from grinding amaranth seeds and a hint of fennel into a fine powder. We throw in dried fenugreek leaves (kasuri methi), ginger and chilli powder to achieve just the right balance between spice and flavour.
