Amaranth Flour ( Rajgira, Rajgiro Flour)


It is a flour made from the seeds of a plant called amaranth. There are many members of the amaranth family. Amaranth flour is used in making pastas and baked goods. It must be mixed with other flours for baking yeast breads, as it contains no gluten. In the preparation of flatbreads, pancakes and pastas, 100% amaranth flour can be used.
When strictly non-cereal items are required in India during specific fasting days, this one fits the bill nicely.
