Hey U,

Amaranth is a type of Green like Spinach/Mustard AND a type of grain!

The green is called Mulai Keerai in Tamil! www.bawarchi.com/… says its called "Chauli, chavleri" in Hindi!

Amaranth flour is made from organic amaranth seeds. Amaranth flour has a pleasant, nutty taste. It makes good tasting bread, muffins, bagels, pasta, milk, imitation nut butter ,cookies, gravies, sauces, pancakes, flatbreads, doughnuts, dumplings, etc., says http://www.specialfoods.com/amarant…

To see how the grain/green look like, visit http://www.foodsubs.com/Grainoth.ht…

Good Luck!

Hi, Amaranth is a seed of a tall plant, It is known as Rajgeera in Western India and Ramdana in Northern India. It is considered to be God's food or King's food.

The flour made from the seeds is used to make dishes for vrat or fasting. you can find it in Indian store or Gujarati Indian store by asking for 'Rajgeera flour'. This link is for a fasting recipe which uses this flour as an ingrediant. http://www.bawarchi.com/cookbook/na…

Dear, Amaranth is a tall plant with very broad leaves; it produces many thousands of tiny seeds. The leaves and the seeds are edible. The amaranth is closely related to pigweed, spinach, beets, and other plants in the goosefoot family, Chenopodiaceae. Although the amaranth is sometimes classified in the goosefoot family, it is most commonly classified in its own family, Amaranthaceae. The point of all this is that persons who tolerate spinach and beets well may do very well on the highly nutritious seeds, leaves, and flour of the amaranth. Special Foods™ amaranth flour is made from organic amaranth seeds. Amaranth flour has a pleasant, nutty taste. It makes good tasting bread, muffins, bagels, pasta, milk, imitation nut butter ,cookies, gravies, sauces, pancakes, flatbreads, doughnuts, dumplings, and who knows what else. (Recipes are supplied with the flours). ALL recipes are made without wheat or other grains, without yeast, and without milk, eggs, or sugar. Amaranth pasta is light brown in color; when cooked, the pasta is the color of whole-wheat noodles and the consistency of regular noodles.

Its considered as herbal plant in europe and latin countries, this tall plant with big leaves which have tiny seeds resemble wheat grains in colour and with slight nutty taste. I actuallly saw this plant when i visited mexico two years before, they are cultivated there, and used in lot of foods like bread, tortillas, muffins, etc..... they have different taste, i think the leaves also edible because i tasted a chicken dish with that leaves while i was visiting a village in mexico.First i thought its originated from India because of name, but then i was wrong, its originally from europe mainly spain and holland part.

One thing is sure its tasty and differ from other herbs. bye.sam.

Amarnath: Then there is amaranth, with juicy thick green stems and triangular large leaves. Its staying capacity will keep it fresh in the fridge for a week to ten days, easily. Raithas and cooked vegetable with a spicy flavouring are its best preparations.

I remember in late 1950s, there was "Dalda" (hydrogeneated peanut oil)sold in India as a cheap substitute for Ghee. Dalda was a brand name. It was customary for the merchants to mix Dalda with Ghee and sell it as Ghee to increase there profit margins. For consumer ptotection, there was a brand name "Amaranth" that sold canned "Pure Ghee" making it harder for the merchants to sell "milawati" (mixed) Ghee in Northern India specially UP and Rajasthan. I understand it was long ago, and perhaps "Amarnth" brand name has moved on. My guess is that the brand name of "Amarnth" was derived from "for ever purity". I hope other advisor can be of better help.
